Polar expedition experts One Ocean Expeditions are introducing a new 10-day cruise in the Atlantic Provinces of Canada visiting Nova Scotia, Quebec and Newfoundland and the French territory of Saint Pierre et Miquelon in July 2015.
Starting in Louisbourg on the southeast coast of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, the journey will showcase the beauty, rich marine life, fishing and Celtic cultures of otherwise inaccessible outports and islands of the Maritime East Coast.
Highlights of the voyage will include the shipwrecks and wild ponies of Sable Island and Canada’s newest National Park, Bird Island; Quebec’s Magdalen Islands, the iconic Bonaventure Island, and the culturally rich Gaspe Peninsula and Anticosti Island. This departure will also take guests to the spectacular Gros Morne National Park and the isolated marine community of Francois, as well as crossing the French border at St-Pierre et Miquelon, before returning to Louisbourg.
The East Coast Wildlife Safari takes place from 7 to 16 July, 2015. Prices start from £4,450 per person sharing a twin cabin including all meals and accommodation on board, Zodiac excursions and landings, ship transfers and foul weather gear. Flights are not included.
