Board the St Lawrence II in charming Saint John in New Brunswick before setting out on an exciting journey to New York City! This beautiful voyage of 14 days will let you get your sea legs and truly experience life on a Tall Ship, while discovering the beautiful coast of Canada and the United States. This voyage qualifies as Duke of Edinburgh Gold Preliminary, Practice and Qualifying Journey. Open to young Windseekers between 15 and 23 years old only. Costs in Canadian dollars: $ 1,760 CAD.


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.

New York is the most popular city in the United States and exerts a significant impact upon fashion, art, research, technology, entertainment and so much more. Here you can go to a musical, take a walk in Central Park, visit Metropolitan Museum of Art, and see the view from the Empire State Building. This is a destination you need to visit more then once!
