Culture, History and People at the heart of a comprehensive ‘all Canadian’ experiential cruise program launch for Canada’s 150th Anniversary.
Canada’s 150th Anniversary draws travellers from around the world to discover Canada, with leading expedition cruise specialist, One Ocean Expeditions (OOE). OOE’s commitment to build and operate quintessential Canadian cruise itineraries and programing commemorates the confederation of Canada.
One Ocean Expeditions’ 2017 “Canada 150” program launch is timely as the world’s appreciation for the nation is at an all-time high. “We are extremely proud to be the leading Canadian cruise operator offering world-class small ship expedition cruises in the Canadian Arctic, Nunavut and Quebec, as well as Canada’s Atlantic provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador. Needless to say, we have our nation at heart and Canada’s 150thanniversary is the best opportunity for One Ocean Expeditions to express and share our love for this incredible nation with the world,” says Managing Director Andrew Prossin. “Our team has developed an immersive program that brings incredible Northern and East Coast history and culture to life,” added Andrew Prossin.
One Ocean Expedition’s line up of Canadian talent and expert educators, scientists, photographers, marine biologists, historians, artists and expedition leaders involved on all 2017 OOE cruise departures is unprecedented.
Longtime Inuit guides, world-renowned documentary film producers and photographers share insight into northern traditions, wildlife and the natural environment through visual storytelling, cultural display and photo/art exhibits and workshops. Historians lead educational presentations and field visits to historical archeological sites including locations associated with Sir John Franklin’s ill-fated expedition. World-class chefs invite guests to sample authentic Canadian dishes, local to the area of exploration, and educate them about ingredients and produce that comes from the land and ocean. OOE’s “Canadian Speaker Series” hosts visual artists Cory Trepanier and Chris Cran, photographers, John Lehmann and Debra Garside, as well as educators, musicians and other accomplished Canadians who are contributing to Canada’s legacy.
