Getting Here By Sea

Make a sea cruise part of your travels when you visit Newfoundland and Labrador. Then you'll know why they say half the fun is getting there.

Marine Atlantic's ferries accommodate all vehicles year round from North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Port aux Basques in southwestern Newfoundland. The ferry to Port aux Basques brings you to the south west coast of Newfoundland and within a few hours of driving distance from Norris Point and Neddies Harbour Inn.

Throughout the summer, a second ferry sails from North Sydney to Argentia, bringing you to within an hour or two of St. John's. This offers a great opportunity for a round trip.

Marine Atlantic ferries offer a wide variety of on board accommodations and features, including deluxe cabins, dormitory sleepers, full meal and beverage service, live entertainment, movies, and children's activity programs.

Whenever you're on the water, be prepared to be entertained and amazed by wonderful natural spectacles like Humpback and Minke Whales that appear in season, or the many varieties of seabirds that roost in huge coastal colonies. Ferries are floating observation platforms. Along the eastern coastline, look for icebergs bigger than you ever imagined. Those who live by the sea swear that the best way to see Newfoundland and Labrador is from the water. Come see for yourself.
