Canada’s East Coast Maritime provinces are home to some of the finest golf courses in North America. Golfers from around the world are drawn by the superb courses offered and the magnificent coastal settings. Exposed to the elements, these championship layouts provide a great test for golfers of all skill levels. When you add the rich culture and history found in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and the islands in the Gulf of St Lawrence, you have all the hallmarks of a great vacation.

On this outstanding voyage we blend a unique cruise experience, full of wildlife encounters, visits to colourful coastal villages plus exciting off-ship excursions, while providing easy access to several of Canada’s most spectacular golfing locations. Challenging courses, superb coastal and mountain views, great competition and a fun, convivial atmosphere on board will make this a truly memorable golfing and travel experience. While our golfers are off to the first tee, all non-golfing guests enjoy a terrific range of activities such as cruising in the Zodiacs, hikes on shore, town and village visits, wildlife viewing, cycle touring, sea kayaking and even stand-up paddle boarding – all in the company of our expert team of guides.

Today we are anchored off the broad sand beach at Inverness, a small hamlet situated on Nova Scotia’s west coast. Golfers have the chance to enjoy Cabot Links, one of North America’s top golf courses. Exposed to the winds of the Gulf of St Lawrence, the expansive layout presents a superb challenge for players of all abilities.

Sculpted out of sandstone, these islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence are home to unique fishing communities with beautifully maintained waterfront houses and boats, flowing grassy plains and sandstone shorelines sculpted by the elements. Having enjoyed several rounds of golf on the truly challenging layouts of Canada’s Maritimes, today we enjoy the opportunity to play the simple nine hole course at L‘Etang-du-Nord. This is the only golf course on the island and offers beautiful coastal views. If you feel the need for a day away from the fairways, the island’s gentle terrain is a cyclist’s paradise, while the sea kayaking and stand up paddle boarding through sea arches and into sandstone sea caves is superb. Otherwise you might enjoy a bird-watching cruise in the zodiacs or head to the beach to soak up some sun.




Day 5

Greenwich National Park, Prince Edward Island | Links at Crowbush

Overnight we have sailed to Prince Edward Island, home to an extraordinary national park, including the Greenwich dunes. The parabolic dunes are a rare occurrence in North America and offer a variety of bird species and uncommon marsh and woodland plants for visitors to take in. Today we enjoy the challenge of another fabulous links-style course at Crowbush - a gorgeous championship layout which earned a 5-star rating by Golf Digest. This is undoubtedly the jewel in crown of Prince Edward Island’s renowned golf scene.

This morning, the golf cruise takes you into Ingonish – a cluster of five small communities on the famous Cabot Trail. Here lies one of the original golf courses in Cape Breton – Highland Links. Designed by the renowned architect Stanley Thompson, Highland Links was built in the 1930s as journey of sorts, traversing through woods and on coastal land overlooking the ocean. Cut from dense forest the undulating terrain offers wonderful ocean glimpses, it is no surprise that Highland Links constantly ranks in Canada’s Top 10 best golf courses.

Located on the edge of the Grand Banks, hundreds of kilometers from the coast, Sable Island has a storied history as a graveyard of ships, with more than 350 ships falling victim to the treacherous currents and sandbars. Sporadically inhabited by sealers, shipwreck survivors and salvagers, the island is now home to fewer than six year-round inhabitants, a herd of wild horses and one of the largest gray seal colonies in the world. It is an important stopover for numerous migratory bird species as they make their way to and from the High Arctic regions.




Day 8

Saint-Pierre et Miquelon are a small group of islands situated off the south coast of Newfoundland. They were first settled by the French in the early 17th century and today, the islands represent the sole remaining vestige of France’s once vast North American empire. There's an excellent puffin colony here and, if weather permits, we cruise in the Zodiacs to see these colourful birds. Additional activities for the day include an excellent hike to enjoy the beautiful landscape.

Our fabulous trip comes to an end and we reflect on the truly memorable courses that have challenged all golfers. We disembark in the morning and, while some of us will head to the airport, many will add a few extra days in Nova Scotia to enjoy the hospitality, culture and renowned seafood.
