Overlooking Casco Bay, Portland is home to a wealth of historical and architectural masterpieces. Portland has an extensive nautical history which has been preserved throughout the centuries. Established by the British in 1632 as a fishing settlement, the town quickly became a mecca for shipping and trading companies.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow immortalized Portland. “Often,” he wrote in My Lost Youth, “I think of the beautiful town that is seated by the sea …”

Nova Scotia’s capital is a historic community that still shows a striking resemblance to the Halifax of the 1800’s when it was a key naval station in the British Empire. The crown jewel of the town is restored and active Halifax Citadel, a military bastion that has been standing for over 250 years. Stroll down Spring Garden Road, a lively neighborhood with intriguing boutiques set among a mildly Bohemian street scene.

Brightly colored fishermen’s houses also dot the area to make the islands a vibrant and quaint landscape.
The deepwater port of Gaspé is notable for having been the first stop of Jacques Cartier, in 1534, to claim the land for France. That is why Gaspé is called the “Birthplace of Canada”. The town is proud to have a magnificent stretch of water in Gaspé Bay, which is considered to be the second largest natural bay in the world, surrounded by three of the most beautiful salmon rivers in Quebec, numerous lakes, as well as Forillon National Park, plus many beaches along the shore.

Where the St. Lawrence and the Saguenay meet is one of the most popular whale-watching spots in Canada. The thriving natural conditions in the estuary support a permanent colony of a thousand whales. Beautiful views of the length of the fjord are found at Cap Trinite, a cliff that rises above the channel, with a 33-foot statue of the Virgin Mary surveying the scenery from the lowest ledge.
