Join Naturalist Journeys for this Canadian nature cruise. Explore Canada's East Coast including Sable Island, Perce, Quebec, Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland and Labrador, and even the quaint taste of France in St. Pierre and Miquelon. See the famous wild horses of Sable Island, and enjoy sea kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, and cycling excursions throughout the voyage.

This Canadian expedition cruise takes travelers to islands and remote parts of Canada's Atlantic coast. Eastern Canada is famous for a rich and diverse culture, found in small fishing communities and remote ports. The region also offers a staggering abundance of wildlife, including prolific birdlife, numerous seal and whale species, and of course, Sable Island's famed horses. Northern Gannet and Atlantic Puffins abound! Beaches and lagoons provide viewing opportunities for numerous shorebirds. On the cruise we hope to see the great baleen whales such as the Humpback, Minke, and Blue Whale, as well as Grey and Harp seals.

This Canadian cruise is designed to pair well with our Newfoundland and Labrador cruise.
