These activities include sea kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, on-shore guided hiking and bicycle touring; meetings with locals in remote fishing communities and educational seminars on marine wildlife, Canadian history and photography by onboard experts. Guests can experience as many activities on the ship as they do off the ship, defining the expedition cruise experience that is unique to OOE.
Trip highlights include encountering the fabled wild horses of Sable Island, Parks Canada’s newest Natural Reserve off the mainland of Nova Scotia; visiting the world’s largest gannet colonies on Bonaventure Island; setting foot on Canada’s birth-place, Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, and walking on the earth’s crust at Tablelands, a World Heritage Site in Gros Morne National Park.
With over 200,000 kilometers (over 124,000 miles) of coastline, Canada boasts the longest coastline in the world. OOE’s Canadian Signature Experience was chosen for the exceptional experience connecting travellers to Canadians and Canada’s geography, rich cultural heritage on coastal communities and marine adventures.
In July 2017, OOE is introducing a new voyage on Canada’s East Coast, the ‘Labrador and Torngat Explorer’ http://www.oneoceanexpeditions.com/voyages/labrador.
