We are honoured to receive Destination Canada’s ‘Canadian Signature Experience’
stamp of approval!
Destination Canada welcomed us in 2017 to the Canadian Signature Experience program with our unique ‘Fins and Fiddles’ expedition cruise to Canada’s East Coast. The Canadian Signature Experience is a curated collection of innovative travel experiences designed to encourage local and global visitors to further explore Canada by introducing them to the most authentic and memorable experiences possible, Coast to Coast.
This voyage caters to travelers and families that are interested in exploring the diverse facets of Canada’s friendliest region, the Maritimes and Canada’s East Coast. Departing from Nova Scotia, the voyage provides unrivaled access to remote communities, abundant wildlife, natural beauty and diverse cultural experiences representing Canada’s rich history. Zodiac excursions, soft adventures, and educational seminars take place daily. These activities include sea kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, on-shore guided hiking and bike touring, meetings with locals in remote fishing communities and educational seminars on marine wildlife, Canadian history, and photography by expert staff members. Guests can experience as many activities on the ship as they do off the ship. This makes us unique in the world of expedition cruising.
Trip highlights vary from encountering the fabled wild horses of Sable Island, Parks Canada’s newest Natural Reserve off the mainland of Nova Scotia, visiting the world’s largest gannet colonies on Bonaventure Island, Gaspe in Quebec, to setting foot on Canada’s birthplace, Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, or walking on the crust of the earth at Tablelands, a World Heritage Site in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland & Labrador.
With over 200,000 kilometers (over 124,000 miles) of coastline, Canada boasts the longest coastline in the world. This Canadian Signature Experience was chosen for the exceptional ways it connects visitors to Canadians and Canada’s geography, rich cultural heritage on coastal communities and marine adventures.
