Canada’s leading expedition cruise specialist One Ocean Expeditions (OOE) is introducing a new golf and cruise voyage featuring six different courses around the Maritime Provinces for travellers wishing to enjoy the ultimate golf experience. In between courses, wildlife and photography excursions have been created to explore the wonders of Canada’s East Coast, including mystical Sable Island and its wild horses.
Canada’s East Coast Golf Expedition: Fiddles and Sticks begins and ends in Louisbourg on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, a region which is fast becoming a premiere golf destination, attracting players from around the globe. Golfers joining the voyage have the opportunity to play North America’s most talked about courses including, Cabot Links – also known as Canada’s most authentic and demanding of all seaside courses.
The voyage will also visit Prince Edward Island (PEI), one of the most picturesque of the three Maritime Provinces and also the smallest in both land and population. From the air, PEI appears to be one giant golf course with its rolling greens, sand and water traps, which create an ideal terrain to house over 25 courses. A stunningly beautiful destination to explore, PEI has something for golfers and non-golfers alike, from the sheer variety of courses in close proximity to each other, to the glorious beaches and fascinating island communities.
Les Isle-de-la-Madeleine is Quebec’s most culturally diverse destination. Some guests choose to experience the breathtaking scenery from a zodiac, sea kayak or standup paddle board, while others opt for a land-based sightseeing option such as a guided bike excursion. Bike tours take cyclists along gentle rolling hills to discover small, colourful villages where they meet local people, learn about their Celtic, Acadian and Mi’kmaq heritage and listen to their charming Madelinois accents.
Throughout the journey, OOE’s guests may play golf, participate in daily zodiac and wildlife viewing excursions, take guided hikes and make visits to coastal villages, all of which are included in the price of the voyage.
They also have the option of attending educational seminars given by special guest speakers and expert staff in various fields ranging from marine biology, geology and history, to photography and visual arts. Guests savour Atlantic lobster and local seafood, dance and laugh with local fiddle players and animated storytellers, for which the Province is famous.
Before heading back to Louisbourg, Cape Breton guests experience a day excursion to the mystical Sable Island, Nova Scotia – one of the trip’s many highlights. The island is home to the infamous wild horses as well as diverse flora, rare bird colonies and hundreds of shipwrecks – a reminder of the ill-fated journeys of many early European settlers.
To celebrate the inaugural “Fiddles and Sticks” Golf Expedition Cruise, 27 June – 4 July 2018, OOE is offering a limited time booking incentive of US$750 per person. Prices start at US$2645 based on a triple-share cabin and include early booking incentive, green fees, accommodation and meals onboard as well as daily excursions.
