A Cultural Journey To The Heart Of Canada’s East Coast With An Outstanding Active Programming And Special Guests

March 16, 2019 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Exploring the best of what Canada’s East Coast has to offer, One Ocean Expeditions’ (OOE) commitment to exploration and education is deeply showcased in the 2019 voyages in the Maritimes and Newfoundland and Labrador regions. Guests joining these voyages will have the unique opportunity to see the very best of what the Maritimes region has to offer in a relatively short time. They will experience four distinct cultures (French, Acadian, English and Celtic), visit four Provinces, Parks Canada’s natural reserve of Sable Island, two of Canada’s largess National Parks and two National Historic Sites.

Passengers on the popular ‘Fins and Fiddles’ voyage, designated by Destination Canada as a Canadian Signature Experience, will travel to the epicentre of Canadian culture, while golfers and non-golfers alike traveling on the novel ‘Fiddles and Sticks’ voyage will visit and play the nation’s best golf courses amongst many other active adventures such as cycling, stand up paddle boarding, sea kayaking, hiking and guided nature walks. The ‘Labrador and Torngat Mountains Explorer’ voyage also promises to deliver exceptional cultural and educational experiences with a deeper look at Canada’s complex history including visits to small Inuit communities and the National Historic Site of L’Anse aux Meadows.

Popular Nova Scotia musical group and regional darlings, the Barra MacNeils will be joining the ‘Fins and Fiddles’ voyage July 10th- 20th as OOE hosts what will surely be high-energy ‘kitchen party’ at sea. Andrew Prossin, OOE’s Managing Director, also hails from Cape Breton, and with the company having home ports in both Sydney and Louisbourg, felt it was a natural fit to add the family group as a cultural touch to the voyage.

On the ‘Labrador and Torngat Mountains Explorer’ expedition July 20th-30th, guests will thrill at the opportunity to travel alongside Wade Davis, renowned social anthropologist, best-selling author, filmmaker, lecturer, National Geographic Explorer and Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS) and excellent story teller. Playing a key role on this Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS) Compass Rose departure, Mr. Davis will be sharing his unparalleled knowledge. These exclusive voyages reflect speciality departures with dedicated RCGS programming featured on board.

Whether exploring the coastal wild lands and Viking settlement in Newfoundland and Labrador, golfing the finest links courses of Cape Breton Island and Prince Edward Island, or exploring the sandy shores of Sable Island with its beloved wild horses, each voyage adds together the rich cultures of the Maritimes with history, wildlife encounters and off-ship excursions, all guided by OOE’s friendly team of experts. On any given voyage, guests will be joined by Naturalists, Ornithologists, Historians and Cultural experts, as well as a dedicated golf professional on the golf voyage ‘Fiddles and Sticks’.
