Canada FAQs

Do I need a visa to travel to Canada?
While a visa is not required for most countries, you will need to visit http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta.asp to apply for an Electronic Travel Authorization, which costs CA$7. If you are traveling from South Africa, you will need a visa.

Is tipping customary in Canada?
Tipping between 15-20% on restaurant bills and giving taxi drivers and other service workers a small tip is a cultural expectation in Canada. It is a courteous way to show gratitude and helps supplement what are frequently very low wages (which is how Canada keep prices lower). We always leave the decision of how much to tip (if at all) up to the individual travelers, but it is a cultural norm in Canada.

What is the internet access like in Canada?
If you're in major cities and towns, you will probably have pretty good access to fast, wireless internet. Many of our Canada expeditions do visit some of the more remote regions of the Arctic, and in these areas and while cruising, it is possible that you will not have internet for several days while we are out of range. Otherwise, Canada's internet is reliable.

Can I use my cell phone while in Canada?
If you have activated mobile roaming on your phone before leaving, you will get good coverage in cities and throughout most of southern Canada. However, since most of our itineraries venture into the depths of Canada's remote wilderness and Arctic regions, far from any cell towers, it's likely that you will not have service for some or all of your trip.
