Long before the giants of the cruise industry discovered Newfoundland and Labrador, Adventure Canada plied its waters, bringing a different kind of tourism to the province.

Now, the tour company is celebrating 20 years of visits to the province. It received the rarely-given Freedom of the Seaport from the City of St. John's on the weekend.

Experts on local history, geology and wildlife are part of the crew, including world-famous author and keen birder Margaret Atwood.
