Join Naturalist Journeys on this exciting Canada nature cruise. Take a cruise through Newfoundland and Labrador’s waters on an stunning journey in search of an array of seabirds, dramatic and stunning glacial landscapes, and iconic Arctic mammals like Walrus, Caribou, and even Polar Bear. Nutrient-rich, ocean current upwellings power food-chains that feed whales and many species of seal (Ringed, Hooded, Harbor, and Harp) and support massive breeding colonies of Atlantic Puffin, Northern Gannett, and Razorbill.

Cruise from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland, looking for shearwaters, storm-petrels, and Northern Fulmar. Explore Gros Morne National Park, known for its fascinating geology and healthy population of Moose; see Torngat Mountains National Park, the crown jewel of the Canadian National Park network; learn about Inuit culture. Discover Monumental Island and spend time at the historic sites of Hebron, Hopedale, and l’Anse aux Meadows. Immerse yourself in stunning landscapes, colorful small towns, and charismatic wildlife along the way.

This Canadian wildlife cruise is designed to pair with our Fins & Fiddles: A Canadian Maritime Cruise.
