Sydney to become a ‘Gateway to the Arctic’ with One Ocean Expeditions’ Use of New Pier

May 22, 2017 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Leading expedition cruise specialist, One Ocean Expeditions’ (OOE) Managing Director Andrew Prossin, announced yesterday that upon completion of the new second pier in Sydney, OOE’s fleet of expedition vessels will be moving seasonal provisioning to Sydney, NS.

Prossin, originally from Cape Breton, made the announcement to a Sydney Port Days audience, congratulating Mayor Cecil Clarke for his work in helping develop the new port. Prossin also thanked Mary Tulle of Tourism Cape Breton and local Senator Michael MacDonald for their efforts since 2012 in support of OOE’s move to Cape Breton.

As a premier Arctic and Antarctic cruise operator, Prossin spoke of the exciting opportunity for Sydney to become the ‘Gateway to the Arctic’ for the rapidly-expanding Arctic cruise industry. Access to an expanded deep-water port on Canada’s East Coast will allow companies like OOE to “home port” in Sydney, refueling and provisioning their ships before embarking on voyages north. OOE will further its efforts by working with Cape Breton to attract international traffic to the port.

As the only cruise operator to start and end voyages in Cape Breton, OOE is proud of the contributions it makes to the local economy. Prossin affirmed that with increased cruise traffic to the Arctic, the prospects for economic growth and generational job creation both in Sydney and in the Arctic present incredible opportunities for Canada.

One Ocean Expeditions’ East Coast voyages begin July 2017.
