New Golf Expedition Cruise introduces a world-class experience and action packed program for golfers and active cruise travellers.

The new “Fiddles & Sticks” Golf Expedition Cruise uniquely designed and operated by expedition cruise specialist, One Ocean Expeditions (OOE), explores iconic sites and sounds of Canada’s Maritime Provinces. The cultural vibrancy, breathtaking nature, and caliber of the region’s golf courses can’t be experienced anywhere else. The journey takes travellers and golf enthusiasts to five of the world’s finest oceanfront golf courses and it wouldn’t be complete without visits to captivating coastal destinations like the fabled Sable Island, home of the wild horses and the picturesque Isles de-la-Madeleine located in the French speaking province of Quebec. The expedition cruise is rich in experiences for golfers and non-golfers alike.

OOE is ‘on par’ with this sensational voyage. There are many reasons why golfers and cruise enthusiasts want to join the seven-night Canada’s East Coast Golf Expedition, Fiddles and Sticks, July 27 th – July 4th, 2018. “The reason we expanded our cruise product on Canada’s East Coast is simple. The range and quality of experiences and world class golf courses available in such proximity is impossible to match”, said Andrew Prossin, Managing Director at OOE. “The convenience and hassle-free access to each golf course is fantastic. For the first time ever, we have created a program that offers private water taxi transfer each day, to experience five diverse courses.” added Prossin.

1. Play five of the best seaside golf courses on the planet: The iconic courses are located in three distinct provinces. In Nova Scotia, golfers can experience three spectacular links courses. The 36-holes layout of the Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs is rated in the top 20 links courses in the world. Both carved on Cape Breton Island’s link land, the courses are running firm and strong on the rugged oceanfront where holes are spread out between the sea and the village of Inverness. Highlands Links in Ingonish is a “must play” course with its dramatically diverse topography running from a rocky cliff to the mountains of Cape Breton and back.  Club de Golf des Isles in L’Etan du Nord on the picturesque Isle de-la-Madeleine, Quebec is stunning and slightly less challenging. After testing their skills on the layouts of the Cape’s landscape golfers enjoy the gentle terrain of this 9-hole course. The shorter round is convenient as it provides sufficient time to golfers that wish joining other guests on excursions. The guided biking tour on the island’s rolling hills is a favourite. Crowbush course in the village of Morelle, on Prince Edward Island (PEI) is a 5-star championship design course and undoubtedly the jewel in crown of the island’s legendary golf scene.

2. Join an expedition, not a cruise: While golf enthusiasts enjoy the natural beauty and unique layout of each course, the fellow travellers can experience a wide selection of excursions at each location visited. This expedition offers as many activities off the vessel as on it, to the pleasure of the active cruise traveller. Every day, guests can join guided excursions ranging from sea kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, cycling and hiking to wildlife viewing onboard zodiacs. Throughout the voyage guests can enjoy educational seminars, conducted by knowledgeable staff and experts in marine biology, history, geology, arts & culture and photography. The active programming and authentic setting provided onboard the 98-passenger purpose built scientific research vessel, the One Ocean Navigator, defines the expedition nature of OOE’s cruises.

3. Experience wild cultural diversity and wildlife: Canada’s East Coast is colourful and rich in spirit and culture. With its vibrant heritage and eclectic mix of traditions emerging from the English, French, Irish, Celtic, Scottish and Acadian ancestors who sat foot on the east coast centuries ago. The friendliness and authenticity of locals and onboard staff make travellers’ hearts melt. The sounds of unique accents and the smell of the sea is a feast for the senses. Travelling in the region is equally colourful and rich in nature and wildlife. The visit to Sable Island is for many the voyage’s highlight. Guests enjoy the exclusive opportunity they have when visiting the remote island considering there have recently been less than 2,000 visitors to the island. Another reason is to see the herd of wild horses grazing freely on the sand banks as well observe the world’s largest gray seal colony and rare migratory sea birds. Wildlife viewing on the coast of Cape Breton and the St-Lawrence Gulf is also very exciting with sightings of humpback, minke, blue or pilot whales, and occasionally dolphins.

To celebrate this inaugural “Fiddles and Sticks” golf expedition cruise, July 27th – August 4th, 2018 OOE is offering an introductory booking incentive of US$750. This innovative itinerary caters to the most discerning golfer, active traveller or more contemplative type. Price starts at US$3,993 based on a triple-share cabin and includes golfing fees, accommodation and meals onboard as well daily excursions and equipment, excluding golf equipment.
