Overview

From Toronto, set sail aboard Le Dumont-d'Urville for the vast unspoiled expanses of Canada and the North American coast.

First, you will spend a wonderful time sailing on the shimmering waters of Lake Ontario, then your ship will make its way along the Saint Lawrence River, a prodigious waterway home to exceptionally beautiful nature, including numerous species of marine mammals.

You will then call in at two emblematic cities: Montreal, famous for its energy and cultural vibrancy, and Quebec, capital of Canada's Beautiful Province, located on the St Lawrence estuary and founded by Samuel de Champlain in 1608. Do not miss this charming and lively city where the historic neighbourhood of Old Quebec, with its ramparts and fortifications, is listed as World Heritage by UNESCO.

You will then set a course for the spectacular Saguenay fjord, where you will be able to watch the ballet of the beluga whales that live year round in the calm waters of the loch.  In the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, Havre-Saint-Pierre is the gateway to the beautiful Mingan Archipelago, where giant limestone formations rise from the waters. In this national park reserve, seals and cetaceans share their territory with countless birds.

Le Dumont-d'Urville will then cruise along the coasts of Nova Scotia, home to great historical towns and villages of unrivalled cachet.

You will leave Canadian waters for the United States. In Eastport, you will walk on the first stretch of land reached by the French upon arriving in the New World. This is where the highest tides in the Northern Hemisphere can be found, with tidal ranges of up to 8 metres (26 feet). Provincetown will also provide an opportunity to learn more about the origins of the country in the easy atmosphere of Cape Cod.

You will conclude your journey in Boston, considered to be the cradle of the United States for the key role it played during the American Revolution.
