High Demand Propels Adventure Canada to Add Second Sailing to Mysterious Sable Island, Nova Scotia

1 October 2013

Adventure Tour Operator partners can now offer travellers an extra opportunity to explore the newly named national park during the expedition cruise line’s second scheduled departure, from June 20-28, 2014

Toronto, ON - Adventure Canada’s inaugural sailing to unique Sable Island, a 41-km long sandbar, 300 km southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia is filling fast with the help of their trailblazing trade partners. With the island’s recent designation as Canada’s newest national park and its rare wildlife viewing opportunities, a growing demand to explore the uncharted sandbar prompted Adventure Canada to add a second sailing. The subsequent Sable Island trip departs June 20-28, 2014 and is already starting to fill up.

Adventure Canada encourages tour operators to contact them soon to reserve group space.

On the island, guests will observe the famed herds of wild horses, throngs of seabirds and seal breeding grounds. They will also interact with the small local population, learning about the island’s traditions, folklore and history. For many, the main attraction is just getting to Sable Island, a place very few people have explored, despite its proximity to mainland North America.

“We are committed to providing ample opportunities for travellers to explore the most beautiful corners of the world,” says Cedar Swan, Adventure Canada’s Vice President. “After witnessing so much positive interest in Sable Island, we’re delighted to offer a second sailing for our partners.”

Guests embark from picturesque St. John’s, Newfoundland. Aboard Adventure Canada’s Sea Adventurer ship, dynamic leaders and informed speakers will inspire, teach and entertain voyagers. On the island, travellers will explore the national park, tour the Research and Rescue Station, observe the unique animal populations and meet some of the vastly outnumbered human inhabitants.

On the return journey, the Sea Adventurer will make port in the French territory of St. Pierre and Miquelon, whose population of 6,500 blends French, Basque, Breton and Normand ancestry.

Sailings depart from June 12-20, 2014 and June 20-28, 2014.
