One Ocean Canada

One Ocean offers several itineraries that explore Newfoundland, Nova Scotia & Labrador; some even explore the Canadian Artic! Whichever takes your fancy, one thing is certain – you won’t regret voyaging with One Ocean.  Here are ten reasons to book your cruise with them now. 

Small ship vessels

One Ocean has three vessels that can host between 92 and 146 passengers, so small that you won’t feel like you’re just one of many.  Each ship is also ice-strengthened, meaning that they are exceptionably stable and safe, providing a calm voyage across the seas.  You’ll love the outdoor and indoor viewing areas too!

Experienced expedition team

Whether it’s your kayak guide or your bartender, the One Ocean staff all have years of experience in their fields.  They are an impressive team full of passion for everything ocean.

Limited availability

The One Ocean sailings are very limited in their dates and availability so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment!  Take this as another positive – because you can be rest assured that you won’t be following the crowds! Your friends will be envious when you return home with romantic, arctic tales.

See the exotic part of Canada

Maybe you’ve explored cities like Montreal or Toronto and are looking for something that’s a bit less accessible?  The One Ocean crew journeys into Northern & Eastern Canada to places that you’ve probably not had the chance to see before.  Whether it’s Baffin Island, Prince Edward Island or the national parks in Labrador and Newfoundland – there will be an invigorating itinerary just perfect for you.

Personalized experience

You can choose your own adventures with One Ocean.  They offer many activities depending on location, such as hiking, zodiac cruising, sea kayaking and wildlife viewing!  Choose what you want to get involved in and they provide the gear (e.g, water resistant binoculars, rubber boots and windproof jackets) to make it happen.

Sustainable tourism

This eco-conscious team strive to protect the ocean and look after its inhabitants.  Consequently, they actually fund scientific research aboard their vessels as well as ensuring that guests experience these environments without impacting the natural habitats.  Be a part of something truly special when you book a trip with One Ocean.

Special guests

Interested in discussing underwater behaviour with a marine biologist, or perhaps you’d like to watch the world through an artist’s eyes?  One Ocean regularly welcomes creative and scientific experts on their voyages.  This will add an interesting, more authentic slant to your journey – a departure from what you’d get on a regular cruise.

No pre-planned menus

With an emphasis on sustainable sourcing and local produce, the menu onboard will be of the highest quality.   They ensure that there are healthy options for every meal time and have superb chefs onboard to whip up some creative, tasty delights.

Wellness & fitness programs

Spas, jacuzzis, plunge pools, yoga programs and daily fitness sessions – these guys know how imperative having a balance of relaxation and exercise is!  Use this trip to revitalize as well as explore new places.

Practical cabins

No matter what style of cabin you book, you will be rewarded with foam mattress toppers, black-out curtains, in-room coffee & tea as well as a sleep package. Most cabins will be decked out with twin beds or bunks in true expedition style. If you like bedtime books, be sure to take advantage of the provided reading material on flora, fauna, history and wildlife!
