Welcome to Saint-Pierre et Miquelon

An island with two places and two ports, each with very different experiences. The Port of Saint-Pierre is perfect for any kind of vessel, small or large. The Port of Miquelon being a tad more of a niche itself, is perfect for small expedition ships.

While you’re here, allow yourself to be romanced by the charming and unique characteristics of these beautiful French islands just a short cruise from New York or Boston. Get inspired by the unforgettable richness of Basques, Brittany, Normandy, and Acadian culture so close to home.

Explore the region’s heritage and culture through museums and guided tours. Get up close with nature and explore the islands by foot or hop on a bus tour where a guide will discuss the history of this little part of France tucked away in North America. For example, did you know Saint-Pierre et Miquelon was once a hub for liquor smuggling during the Prohibition Era?

Treat your taste buds to fine French cuisine. Be captivated by the works of local artists. Visit local merchants and pick up a memento from a quaint little boutique. Saint-Pierre et Miquelon is an unforgettable visit to France. So close... yet so French!
