A Canadian family-owned company

Adventure Canada started its operations in 1987 well ahead of the recent swell in Expedition Cruise entrants in the North American space.

The company’s intent has remained constant – to immerse travelers in the culture, history, flora and fauna, and nature in remote rarely visited  places on our planet.

The company provides expedition cruises off Canada’s east coast to the Faroe Islands north of Scotland, to Iceland, to the Arctic, the Northwest Passage, the Haida people of Haida Gwaii in British Columbia, Antarctica,  and more recently to Costa Rica Central America. In addition, Adventure Canada conducts Land Tours of Canada’s northern regions including Baffin Island and Churchill.

Adventure Canada has operated continuously along the East Coast of Canada, to remote locations north of Ireland in the Arctic and more recently in the Costa Rica region of Central America on the Pacific Coast.

The company has an interesting corporate vision where it places more weight on the reasons for being the best as opposed to the state of being the best. 

The Ocean Endeavour is staffed with a full complement of expertise, knowledge and skill to assure safe, enjoyable, informative and fun voyages on board.
