Our adventure begins in the historic port town of Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, where we board our expedition vessel, the One Ocean Navigator / Akademik Ioffe. First visited in 1597 by the English, the town was fortified in 1713 by the French in recognition of its strategic maritime location. During the 18th century, Louisbourg was the third busiest seaport in North America.

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.

Completed in 2016, the new 18-hole layout at Cabot Cliffs was added to the adjacent Cabot Links course. Combined, this 36-hole layout has been rated in the top 20 golf course destinations in the world.




Day 4

Les Iles de la Madeleine (The Magdalen Islands), Quebec | Club de Golf des Iles

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 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 whale-watching cruise in the zodiacs or head to the beach to soak up some sun.




Day 5

Morell, Prince Edward Island | Links at Crowbush

Situated on the north coast of Prince Edward Island, facing the Gulf of St Lawrence is the small fishing and agricultural center of Morell. Today w...

Situated on the north coast of Prince Edward Island, facing the Gulf of St Lawrence is the small fishing and agricultural center of Morell. 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. Having completed your round, you will be welcomed back to the ship for a dinner of fresh Atlantic seafood – a Prince Edward Island specialty and we navigate north-east overnight, heading once again for Cape Breton.




Day 6

Ingonish - Cape Breton, Nova Scotia | Highland Links

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.

We sail back to Cape Breton, heading again for the historic port of Louisbourg. We will disembark in the morning and, while some of us will head to the airport, many will add a few extra days in Cape Breton to enjoy one of the gems of Canada’s East Coast.
