Historically, Canada's Atlantic Coast is one of the most fascinating places in North America. The region also offers a staggering abundance of wildlife, including prolific birdlife, numerous seal and whale species and even encounters with the fabled wild horses of Sable Island. Beaches and lagoons provide viewing opportunities for
numerous shorebirds. Cruise towards the mouth of the St Lawrence River it may be possible to see great baleen whales such as the humpback, minke and blue whale, as well as grey and harp seals. This ship-based exploration allows visits to places that are otherwise inaccessible or difficult to get to for land-based visitors.
