Down East Circle Route Passage Planner

Down East Circle Route

It is little wonder that hundreds of recreational mariners choose the Down East Circle Route for their Summer cruising. Picture-perfect scenery along tranquil canals, expansive rivers, historic world-class cities, cultural attractions in 2 different countries along with fabulous food are some of the reasons to make this mini great circle cruise.

Most cruisers begin in New York City, transit up the Hudson River to the Erie Barge Canal, into Lake Ontario and then head northeast in the St. Lawrence River. After city stops in cosmopolitan Montréal and old world Québec City, you are back in the St. Lawrence River transiting the Gulf of St. Lawrence being treated all the while to beautiful Canadian islands (make sure you stop in Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island). Eventually you will reach the Canso Straits and head south along the Nova Scotia Coast with a stop in Halifax.
