Ports

Shelburne is a small town located in the southeast end of Nova Scotia, Canada. While visiting the town take a trip to Dory Shop Museum and learn about the iconic Nova Scotian small-crafts. Or take a boat tour and learn more about the area and the wildlife around it.

Saint John is the only city on the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick, Canada, situated at the mouth of Sain John river. It is a perfect starting point for many trips to admire the Canadian nature: the Irving Nature Park, Rockwood Park or the Reversing Falls, to name a few. You can also visit the Carleton Martello Tower or the New Brunswick Museum to learn more about the area. Finally take a walk at an indoor city market where you can taste local specialities and buy some handcrafted souvenirs.
