We engage, entertain, and educate by connecting people to each other and the land through innovative travel experiences. We cultivate connection and community. We celebrate culture. We are driven by heart, humanity, and hope. We can be the company that does expedition cruising the best, but we can also be the company that does it for the best reasons.

Small-Ship Expedition Cruises

Founded in 1987, Adventure Canada is a family-run travel company specializing in small-ship expedition cruises to the world’s most beautiful and seldom visited coastlines. Our pioneering approach to expedition cruises and small-group experiences emphasizes wildlife, culture, learning, and fun. We believe in the power of travel as a force for positive change in the world and strive to give back as much as we gain.

Transform the Way You See the World

Get out onto the water daily in our large fleet of safe and stable Zodiacs. These boats take you where the action is—they can access even the most hard-to-reach fjords, channels, and beaches!

  • Search for wildlife
  • Cruise amongst icebergs
  • Explore natural and historic sites
  • Visit welcoming communities
  • Meander dramatic coastlines

Our goal is to get off the ship as often as possible so you can experience the environment to the fullest.
