Join this 11-day summer sailing, ideally timed for whales, icebergs, and breeding seabirds. The rugged charm and geographic diversity of Newfoundland and Labrador are best appreciated by ship. Starting and ending in historic St. John's, experience Newfoundland's lively culture and dramatic scenery with daily expeditions.

Day 1

Embark in St. John's, Newfoundland

Arrive in St. John's, the historic and vibrant capital of Newfoundland. Picturesque and welcoming, St. John's is proud of its 500 year history. Embark the Ocean Endeavour from St. John's harbor.

Day 2

  • Ship
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Terra Nova National Park

Terra Nova National Park of Canada is a place where long fingers of the North Atlantic Ocean stretch to the island's boreal forest. Rocky headlands provide shelter from the awesome power of the open ocean. The landscape of the park varies from rugged cliffs and sheltered inlets on the coastal region, to rolling forested hills, bogs, and ponds inland. Cultural history abounds in the remnants of sawmills and past human cultures.

Day 3

  • Ship
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


On the Great Northern Peninsula, the people of Conche welcome you into their charming community. Conche is made up of mostly Irish descent, which you can observe in ties to Irish history and religion. Explore the colorful town on foot, but don't be surprised if you are invited in by local residents for a "mug up"!

Day 4

  • Ship
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

St. Anthony and L'Anse aux Meadows

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, L'Anse Aux Meadows is the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America. The archeological remains here date to approximately 1000 A.D. Today a superb interpretive center and reconstructions of the several Norse-style sod buildings make L'Anse Aux Meadows a must-see for any visitor to Newfoundland.

Day 5

  • Ship
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Red Bay

Today stop at Red Bay, the fishing village and former site of several Basque whaling stations, occupied between 1550 and the early 1600s when they hunted right and bowhead whales.

Day 6

  • Ship
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Gros Morne National Park

It has been said that "Gros Morne is to geology what the Galapagos are to biology." The Park's mountains are both picturesque and highly unusual: the Tablelands, a 600m (1900 ft) plateau, forms one of the world's best examples of exposed ancient rock from the earth's interior. The Park's fjords are equally stunning, and the town of Woody Point has become widely renowned for its annual Writers' Festival.

Days 7-9

  • Ship
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Newfoundland's South Coast

The wild and windswept coast of Southern Newfoundland is home to a few remaining outpost communities, still largely cut off from mainstream travel. Visits here are often a highlight of our trips. There are many unique bays and coves to explore via Zodiac or land excursion.

Day 10

  • Ship
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Miquelon, France

The territory of St. Pierre and Miquelon, France, is all that remains of the once-vast French holdings in North America. Off the tip of the Burin Peninsula, Newfoundland, the territory consists of eight islands, two of which are inhabited. The village of Miquelon, on the island of the same name, is inhabited by 600 people, mostly of Basque and Acadian ancestry.

Wildlife is abundant on this island and its southern neighbor, Langlade Island, which are joined by an 8-km sand dune.

Day 11

  • Breakfast

Disembark in St. John's Newfoundland
