Golf & Cruise

Imagine sailing along spectacular coastlines and playing golf at some of the best courses in the world.  In addition, explore some amazing sights, both natural and historical.  Best of all, with your cruise ship as your base you get to unpack only once!

In Canada's Maritimes we blend a unique cruise experience, full of wildlife encounters, visits to colourful fishing villages plus exciting off-ship excursions, while providing easy access to several of Canada’s most spectacular golfing locations: Cabot Links & Cabot Cliffs (NS), L‘Etang-du-Nord (Les Iles de la Madeleine), Crowbush (PEI), Highland Links (NS).  

In Scotland and Ireland enjoy breathtaking views and convenient access to the golf courses, as we shuttle you effortlessly from one to the next: Royal County Down, The Lost Course, Cruden Bay and the historic Balgownie course at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club.  Those who do not golf have access to historical locations, distilleries, activities and superb scenery.
