Suggested Itineraries between New York and Labrador

Deck of M V Cape Race

M V Cape Race

New York City, Nantucket, Maine and Nova Scotia

Imagine mooring in New York Harbor. Sipping a cocktail on deck with a view of the Manhattan skyline before a Broadway show and night on the town. A day or two later, steam out past the Statue of Liberty toward Mystic, Connecticut, via the coast of Long Island. Tie up on a quai surrounded by historic Mystic seaport. Visit the Museum of America and the Sea. From Mystic, M V Cape Race‘s captain charts a course for exclusive Martha’s Vineyard, on Nantucket Island. Your view of the island’s gingerbread cottages is from the water, like sailing ship’s of old. This suggested custom itinerary will take between 7 and 10 days. You tell us your dream and we will work out the details.

St. Pierre and Miquelon to southwest Newfoundland and Labrador

Two countries – France and Canada – are visited during this suggested custom itinerary that begins in the French colony of St. Pierre. Shop for French wine. Enjoy cheeses as only the French prepare. Soak up the quaint harbour view from the deck of your private motor vessel. St. Pierre is across the strait from the southwest tip of the island of Newfoundland, so your first Canadian port is the tiny  fishing village of Fortune. From Fortune M V Cape Race follows the rugged coast of the island affectionately known as “the Rock.” Visits could include “Blow Me Down Park” in Cox Cove. The fjords of The UNESCO World Heritage Site Gros Morne National Park can be explored while you take unforgettable photos from the deck of Cape Race. At L’Anse aux Meadows explore a 1,000 year old recreated Viking village, proof that Christopher Columbus was not the first European to reach North America. This custom itinerary of 7-10 days can disembark in St. Anthony’s on the northern peninsula of the island or you can continue to the Labrador shore, and the ports of Battle Harbour or Nain.
