Sable Island has all the makings of a myth: a forty one kilometers long sandbar, three hundred kilometres southeast of Halifax, known as the Graveyard of the Atlantic. Now a research and rescue station, the remote and otherworldly island was recently named a national park by the Government of Canada. A legend for centuries, Sable Island beckons the intrepid adventurer for a closer look at its many mysteries on a unique Canadian Arctic expedition cruise.
