Travel with us

Canada's East Coast

Explore Canada's East Coast including Sable Island, Perce, Quebec, Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland & Labrador, and even the quaint taste of France in St.Pierre & Miquelon. Family friendly tours take you to see the famous wild horses of Sable Island as well as sea kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and cycling excursions throughout the voyage.

Exploring the coastal wild lands of Newfoundland & Labrador, this expedition cruise travels through the western shores of Newfoundland including Gros Morne National Park, and Torngat National Park. This voyage links several fascinating historic locations on Canada’s east coast including L'ans Aux Meadow, the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site and local outports of Labrador.


This celebrated voyage explores the remote Northwest Passage, starting in western Greenland and finishing in the remote Arctic outpost of Cambridge Bay, at the western extremity of the fabled waterway. We follow in the footsteps of the early Arctic explorers such as Franklin, Amundsen and Larsen, exploring the archipelago of islands and channels that create Canada’s high Arctic region. This is the home of the polar bear, the barren ground grizzly bear, musk ox, caribou and walrus.

Pathways to Franklin
August 23 - September 1

This voyage will appeal to both lovers of wildlife and the dramatic history of early polar exploration. We will trace the routes of the early explorers who sailed – and perished – in these waters as they sought a way through the fabled Northwest Passage. Our itinerary includes a visit to one of the largest migratory bird sanctuaries in the world, and we enjoy frequent sightings of seals as well as beluga whale. The mythical narwhal inhabits these waters, and we also hope to encounter polar bears at special locations that we have discovered over the years.


Christmas in Antarctica
December 20 30, 2018

Join us for the ultimate ‘White Christmas’ on a memorable voyage to the Antarctic Peninsula on the more capable, and more comfortable RCGS Resolute. Towering glaciers, amazing wildlife encounters, snow-covered landscapes, massive icebergs and the option to choose your favorite activities each day make this voyage the perfect way to spend the holiday season. In the waters of the Antarctic Peninsula, we spend our days off the ship exploring by Zodiac boat, making several shore landings each day in the company of our expert guides. We discover Antarctica and its remarkable wildlife through photography, zodiac excursions, hiking onshore, and, for the more adventurous, camping and sea kayaking. Visits to historic huts and the opportunity to visit a working research station add another dimension to the voyage.

Quest for the Antarctic Circle
December 29, 2018- January 8, 2019

Cross the circle and enjoy more time exploring the Antarctic Peninsula. Utilizing our decades of experience, we have designed a voyage allowing us to reach our objective of the Antarctic Circle in just 11 days. On the way south, we enjoy eight days of off-ship exploration visiting a large number of landing sites and cruising among the ice floes in our Zodiac boats, before reaching the Antarctic Circle in the vicinity of Detaille Island.
