The Route to History
Plying the waters of the mighty Bay of Fundy, which boasts some of the highest tides in the world, the Princess of Acadia offers travellers an exciting glimpse into Canada’s history. Saint John, her home port, is located in New Brunswick, aptly called Canada’s picture province, and is the oldest incorporated city in Canada. The safe harbour was discovered by Samuel de Champlain and leads to the world-famous Reversing Falls of the St. John River.
The Princess of Acadia sails daily through the Digby Gut on route to Digby harbour, snuggled cozily on the waters of Annapolis Basin, the area where Champlain founded the first permanent settlement in Canada. Here the rock-ribbed cliffs of Nova Scotia give way to the surge of the Fundy and allow entrance to the pastoral Annapolis Valley, gateway to the province that is Canada’s ocean playground.
