    Experience the thrill of walking high above the Reversing Falls Rapids at the new Skywalk in Saint John! You will be suspended 120 feet above the water on the Skywalk, made using the most advanced technology in glass and steel, which offers an unparalleled view of this natural wonder.


    When you arrive onsite at the Skywalk, there is so much to see and do! Be brave and take a walk on the glass Skywalk, suspended 24 feet past the rock cliff’s edge over the Reversing Falls Rapids! Take in a short film that explains the tides in the Bay of Fundy, and how the unique Reversing Falls Rapids are created when the force of the Bay of Fundy collides with the mighty St. John River, forcing the river to reverse direction and flow backwards twice each day! The Skywalk offers an incredible vantage point to take a thrilling walk over the Reversing Falls Rapids!


    Enroute to the Skywalk with your local guide, you tour begins by exploring Saint John’s highlights, including the colorful streets of Saint John’s historic uptown, a short walk along the water’s edge on Harbour Passage, and the breathtaking view from Fort Howe.


    Stop for a photo at Fallsview Park, where the mighty St. John River meets the powerful tides of the Bay of Fundy, thus creating this unique phenomenon. Tides in the Bay of Fundy rise-and-fall up to 50 feet each day! Fallsview Park, one of the geosites in Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark, will give you a look at the Reversing Falls Rapids from the lowest point on land, before you make your way to the highest and most exciting lookout at the Skywalk. The rocks at the Reversing Falls Rapids exhibit one of the most interesting stories in the Stonehammer Geopark. Here you can see where two continents collided and view the exposed rock ranging from 50 million to 1 billion years old.

    Celebrate the country’s 150-year anniversary with a range of pure Canadian experiences that includes visiting early settlements and landmarks and shopping for Canadian delicacies.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a circuitous, picturesque drive through Halifax, admiring historic sites such as the Halifax Citadel, where the British built a fort and founded the town, and the Province House, Canada’s oldest legislative building. Along the way, you will hear fascinating stories about Halifax’s history, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and why Nova Scotia sends Boston a spruce tree every Christmas.


    Continuing on, you will arrive at another extraordinarily scenic area, Old Town Lunenburg. Established in 1753, it is North America’s best surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement. The original layout and appearance has been retained so faithfully that UNESCO designated Lunenburg a World Heritage site.


    During free time, you can explore the brightly colored Old Town, which is easy to navigate because the streets follow a rectangular grid pattern designed in Britain. You can expect to see 18th-century wooden buildings and perhaps a replica of the Bluenose, Canada’s legendary racing ship that was launched here in 1921.


    Later, in lovely Mahone Bay, you may shop or dine on your own, prior to visiting Arcadian Maple. This family-owned business sells all sorts of Canadian delicacies, many made with maple syrup.


    Before returning to the pier, more free time awaits you in Peggy’s Cove, a quaint fishing community with one of the country’s most photographed lighthouses.

    Admire the natural beauty surrounding the Bay of Fundy by visiting a coastal park full of hiking trails, lookouts and historical buildings from the years when this area was logged.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a relaxing drive to St. Martins, a lovely coastal village settled in 1783. It is known for its twin covered bridges, which you will view from a vantage point that allows you to capture both bridges in one spectacular shot.


    Continuing on, you will travel the winding Fundy Trail Parkway, passing forest lookouts, more beautiful beaches and the spectacular Bay of Fundy that rims the park. At the Big Salmon Interpretive Centre, you will watch an enlightening video about the park’s history and the modest lodge that newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst built nearby.


    You will then have free time to enjoy the attractions that interest you most. You might meander the hiking paths, cross the suspension footbridge that spans the crystal-clear Salmon River, and explore the replica sawmill. Be sure to see Flower Pot Rock, a tall thin rock tower that the pounding sea has shaped over time.


    The bay’s rising tides have also created sea caves in the red sandstone, which you will see on the return to St. Martins. While totally submerged during high tide, the caves are easy to reach at low tide and make for a memorable photo any time. Following lunch at a restaurant that overlooks the caves, you will return to Saint John.

    Enjoy the best of what the Saguenay region has to offer. Your tour begins with a scenic drive through La Baie, where you’ll discover the importance of the Saguenay Fjord – deeply chiseled in the Laurentian Mountains. The Fjord Museum will explain the creation of the fjord and the mysteries it conceals. You’ll pass the Ha! Ha! Pyramid, a monument to the great flood of 1996 that devastated the region and proved to be one of Canada’s greatest natural disasters. You’ll then cross the street and be entertained during your visit to the Olivier Soap Museum Workshop.


    Olivier combines the aromatic therapeutic properties of pure essential oils, the art of traditional soap making, the science of plants and flowers and the history of pure olive oil to create extraordinarily mild, biodegradable and long-lasting skin solutions. A visit will be made to Arthur Villeneuve’s Place, where guests are invited to see the impressive frescoes done by the local barber-painter that cover almost every square inch of his home. Your final stop will be to Le Chevrier du Nord, a small family run goat farm that produces goat mohair wool.

    Discover why Bar Harbor attracts so many foodies by sampling a wide variety of delectable dishes and treats made with locally sourced ingredients on this culinary walking tour.


    After meeting your local ‘food lover’ guide at the pier, you’ll commence a leisurely walk to Village Green, a park-like setting lined with restaurants that serve imaginative and classic Maine dishes. You will visit a number of these prime establishments and have the opportunity to sample their most popular offerings.


    Your guide was born and raised in Bar Harbor and will happily impart to you unique, “insider’s tips” only the locals know. The shop owners are also quite willing to share the histories of their businesses, so your experience will be both fun and enlightening. You can expect to visit about a half dozen venues, among them the Fish House Grill. The proposed samplings there include delectable clam chowder, mini lobster roll and refreshing blueberry soda.


    Other stops will be Bar Harbor BeerWorks, where you may sample a juicy burger, fries and craft beer. Maine’s official berry is the wild blueberry, so it’s only natural that it’s used in many of the state’s signature dishes and treats. It’s also very versatile as you will discover by sampling blueberry popcorn at Bar Harbor Popcorn and later, fresh blueberry pie at Cherrystones.


    The latter is a restaurant that specializes in cherrystone clams. You will also taste these delectable bi-valves, which are harvested offshore throughout much of Maine. They are commonly eaten raw, grilled or chopped up for chowders and other New England dishes.


    Before walking back to the pier you’ll stop at MDI Ice Cream, whose flavors include creamy coconut and blueberry with basil. Following your visit here, you have the option of walking directly back to the pier with your guide, or staying in town to further explore on your own, returning to the ship at your leisure.

    At the tip of a majestic fjord where the waters of the Saquenay and Saint Lawrence Rivers meet lies the charming village of Saguenay. With a decidedly French atmosphere and a touch of the Old World, you’ll visit the district of Chicoutimi and learn about the area's cultural, historic and natural history. As you begin your sightseeing tour, you’ll discover the importance of the fjord, deeply chiseled in the Laurentian Mountains, as a natural trading route for the first Nations people of the area. In the 1600’s, France established its first fur trading post and colonization of the area soon followed. Passing the industrial area, you’ll see how the early 20th century brought exploitation of the river with logging, the pulp and paper industries, and aluminum production.


    Continuing to Chicoutimi, you’ll drive along its main street – rue Racine – and its Old Port. A photo stop will be made at the Cultural Quarter and the Little White House that miraculously survived the Flood of 1996. A photo stop will also be made at the Pulp Mill of Chicoutimi. Founded in 1898, the mill played an important role in the development of the area. Also noted as the first French Canadian owned Pulp Company the mill produced a high quality pulp that was exported throughout the world. You’ll then drive by the Ha! Ha! Pyramid in La Baie district where you’ll learn of the great flood of 1996 that devastated the region and proved to be one of Canada’s greatest natural disasters.

    Ride in a Zodiac boat along the beautiful coast of the Bay of Fundy and then see the wonders from a different perspective by driving through parkland and pausing at the beach.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a relaxing and immensely scenic drive to St. Martins, a lovely coastal village settled in 1783. After boarding a Zodiac boat, you will begin cruising along the longest stretch of coastal wilderness on the eastern seaboard.


    You will see caves that the world’s highest tides have carved out of the red sandstone cliffs, forests growing right to the water’s edge, and one gorgeous beach after another. This part of the bay is so environmentally and geologically unique that UNESCO has designated it a Biosphere Reserve worthy of being preserved in its natural state.


    After more than an hour at sea, you will then see this natural wonderland from a different perspective by driving the parkway that hugs the coast. Along the way, a guide will enlighten you regarding the area’s shipbuilding and logging history.


    While stopping at Long Beach, you will learn fascinating details about the wildly fluctuating tides. At low tide, the sea recedes about 1,600 feet (more than five football fields in length!), exposing huge stretches of the ocean floor.


    On the return to Saint John, you will stop in St. Martins, a lovely coastal village settled in 1783. The lighthouse, fishing boats and twin covered bridges show how life here revolves around the water.

While strolling the hill’s boardwalks, you will learn about the military history of this strategic site.


    Then, it’s on to downtown St. John’s, North America’s oldest and most easterly city. As you drive through the narrow crisscrossing streets, you will pass the Government House, the residence of the Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador. It was constructed of red sandstone quarried from Signal Hill in 1831. Other landmarks include rows of colorful wooden Victorian homes and several churches on the Canadian Register of Historic Places, including the beautiful Basilica Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.


    Nearby Cape Spear is also a National Historic Site, as you will discover during an enlightening visit. The cape is noted for being the easternmost point in North America and the site of the province’s oldest surviving lighthouse. There is also an historical gun battery that was manned during World War II to protect Newfoundland from German U-boats.


    After visiting Cape Spear, you will return to the pier, passing through the scenic fishing village of Petty Harbour.
