South Shore Alumni Expedition
September 14-18/22

Join us for our last extended
tour of the season among the islands and lighthouses of South Shore when we leave the late summer bustle of the mainland and journey among the offshore islands, where the cars cannot go and the tourists seldom venture.

En route we will visit the remote light stations [including Cape Sable Island light - the highest in the province, and Stoddart Island Light - the shortest] and remnants of an island way of life now in the past.

Come for the full 9 days [September 14-22] or either the first half [September 14-18] or the second half [September 14-22].
