Nova Scotia's capital, Halifax, is home to many major sites along the harbour and on the Citadel-crowned hill. The Titanic sank not far from Halifax, and the city's Maritime Museum of the Atlantic has many fascinating Titanic exhibits.

Day 6 - Canso Canal

As we sail toward Charlottetown in Prince Edward Island, we’ll navigate through the Strait of Canso. This strait is located in the province of Nova Scotia and divides the Nova Scotia peninsula from Cape Breton Island.

Day 7 - Charlottetown (Prince Edward Islands)

Charlottetown is a perfect example of traditional Canadian charm and was originally settled by the French before falling to the British. The town played an important role in early Canadian history and is called the "Birthplace of Confederation" after the historic 1864 Charlottetown Conference which led to Confederation. This morning, follow the historic trail walked by delegates to the conference that led to the Confederation of Canada. Then, enjoy a tour of the house, stroll the haunted woods, Lovers' Lane, and the famous white shores of the bay.

Day 9 - Tadoussac

Tadoussac is situated at the confluence of the Saguenay and Saint Lawrence Rivers and is a whale watcher’s paradise. Between May and October up to 13 species of cetaceans make their way upriver from the Atlantic Ocean to the salty rich waters of the St Lawrence River. Join a whale-watching boat and its expert crew for the chance to spot blue whales and humpback whales in the krill-rich waters.

Day 10 - Quebec City

On the St Lawrence River, Quebec is Canada's most historic and beautiful city. Travel to the Plains of Abraham where a historic battle took place and take a step back in time to the early days of Quebec at Place Royale which was bombarded in 1759 from across the river as fire ships were dispatched towards the port.
