East Coast Wildlife Safari

In the 18th Century, the French used the port of Louisbourg as their base while their fleet patrolled the Gulf of St. Lawrence guarding against foreign incursions. On this special itinerary aboard the newly refurbished RCGS Resolute, we too will set forth from this historic port and travel through this region that offers an abundance of bird life, marine mammals and fascinating landforms in addition to unique fishing and Celtic cultures. We’ll travel to islands and remote parts of Canada’s Atlantic coast and call at small fishing communities and remote ports. Beaches and lagoons provide ample viewing opportunities for shorebirds and as we cruise towards the mouth of the St. Lawrence River we hope to see baleen whales such as the Humpback, Minke and Blue Whale as well as Grey Seals and Harp Seals. In Gaspé, we will see the famous Percé Rock and visit the immense and internationally significant colony of the charismatic Northern Gannets at Bonaventure! A bonus of this tour is a visit to Sable Island, home to the almost exclusive nesting ground of the Ipswich Sparrow, breeding Roseate Terns and of course, the famous Sable Island Ponies!

This is an area rich in wildlife and our onboard naturalists will be spotting, identifying and interpreting the wildlife around us. The backdrop includes wonderful scenery, history and local music, in addition to a dining menu inspired by the region’s exquisite marine catch! Join us on this circle-tour of the distinctive region in the heart of Canada’s Atlantic region!
