Silversea Luxury Cruises A St Pierre

By heading almost due east from Cap-aux-Meules in Canada, it is possible to reach France in about one day’s worth of steaming! With barely 6,000 inhabitants living on tiny St. Pierre, it is the smallest French Overseas Collective. The residents of St. Pierre are predominantly descendants of Normans, Basque and Bretons and the French spoken is closer to Metropolitan French than to Canadian French. Although Basque is not spoken any longer, the influence is still felt through sport and a Basque Festival. View more

Interestingly, this small island has two museums in part dedicated to the Prohibition. The Musée Heritage is St. Pierre’s newest museum with a focus on medical artefacts from the 19th and 20th century. Another claim to fame is a guillotine, the only one ever used in North America. In this quirky village it is easy to find the Post Office; just look for the clock tower shaped like a praying monk.

Explore the beauty, history and charm of Ile aux Marins via boat and on-foot during this scenic and relaxing island journey.


Ile aux Marins

Depending on the ship's docking location, you will either start your tour downtown by walking directly to the local ferry station or firstly take a shuttle bus to the downtown area and then walk to the ferry. Upon arrival, embark the ferry (exclusive for Silversea) for the short ride to Ile aux Marins, a charming island facing Saint-Pierre. This small island is located in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Saint Pierre and Miquelon. Settled in 1604, Ile aux Marins was a commune until 1945, when it was annexed by the commune of Saint-Pierre.


Island Walking Tour and Ferry Ride

Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of the island and learn about its history, a unique testimony of the fishermen's past. Local sights to be seen include the museum, Church, the cross, grotto and cemetery. Following your tour of Ile aux Marins, embark the ferry for the short ride back to the pier, and return to the ship.
