If it’s on your bucket list to explore the mighty Saint Lawrence with marine biologists by your side... it just got within reach!

Beakerhead has partnered with Adventure Canada to send a pair of Canadians to experience one of National Geographic Traveller’s 50 Tours of a Lifetime: the Mighty Saint Lawrence June 24 - July 4, 2017. Oh, and you'll celebrate Canada's 150th birthday aboard.

Explore the history of shipwrecks along the Magdalen Islands, the famed rocky cliffs of Cape Breton, and touch down in Saint-Pierre – the last remaining outpost of New France just off the coast of Newfoundland. Icebergs may be seen!

The trip is valued at $22,000. Bidding starts at $7,500.


The auction will close on Thursday, April 20 at 6:00 PM.

This 10-day expedition leaves Quebec City on June 24 – a perfect time to view whales and breeding seabirds.
