This voyage incorporates the stunning coastal regions of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, including the Gaspé, the Magdalen Islands, Cape Breton, and Saint-Pierre.
Marine mammals should be plentiful—some of the best whale watching in Canada is concentrated between the high cliffs of Saguenay Fjord. Forillon National Park and Île-Bonaventure Provincial Park offer spectacular wildlife opportunities, including numerous migrating seabirds. The Magdalen Islands' mix of Acadian and English influences and a history of more than four hundred shipwrecks are among their unique features. They are also home to endangered bird species, including the piping plover and roseate tern. A stop at Cape Breton, famed for its rocky shores, glacial valleys and barren headlands is sure to be a highlight. We’ll also visit Prince Edward Island—Canada's smallest province and the birthplace of Confederation.
We bring our voyage to a close at Saint-Pierre, the last remaining outpost of New France, where fine wine, good cheese and French fashion are to be found—just off the coast of Newfoundland.
