About Atlantic Canada

See the highest tides in the world. Explore a billion years of the earth's history at North America's first geological park. Watch whales breaching in the ocean. Feast on cuisine that's second to none. Golf some of the best courses on the planet and meet some of the most warm and genuine souls you'll ever encounter.

Cruise from New York or Boston to a place where people still smile at you when they pass you on the street. Where they only thing more celebrated than history and culture is family. Visitors flock to Atlantic Canada year round for authentic, life-enriching experiences.

Tucked away on the east coast of Canada, Atlantic Canada is made up of four stunningly beautiful provinces: New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland & Labrador. Cruise to Atlantic Canada and experience as much culture and nature as you will shopping and cuisine.

Each port of call in every province has its own flavor...

Citadel GuardNova Scotia

Sit quietly on one of the smooth giant rocks at Peggy's Cove, close your eyes, and feel the power of the ocean as you listen to the crashing waves. Go ahead and try to keep your feet from tapping to the lively sound of a Celtic fiddle (a common sound in these parts). Feel your heart swell to the sound of a highland bagpiper. Catch your breath as you watch a bald eagle soar overhead.

Fundy TrailNew Brunswick

Stroll the streets of a charming seaside town and pick up a souvenir at a quaint little shop. Feast on Atlantic salmon hauled out of the river earlier in the day. Learn about the fascinating culture of the Acadian and Mi'kmaq people. Take in a concert, go whale watching, play a game of golf, or join an authentic kitchen party. Marvel at the world's highest tides and take a walk on the bottom of the ocean floor.

CharlottetownPrince Edward Island

Walk cobblestone streets and red dirt roads. Spend the afternoon at a white sandy beach where the sand "sings" due to its high percentage of silicone, or at a red sandy beach where the best sea glass is found. Visit the theatre, shop one of many quaint shops, or play a game of golf on a championship course. Then there are the galleries and museums to visit, the historical sites to explore, and the restaurants to sample.

bonne-bayNewfoundland & Labrador

When you sail away from one of the ports of Newfoundland & Labrador, a piece of your soul will stay behind, calling you back until you can return.
