Coming by Ferry to Newfoundland


When taking the Marine Atlantic ferry from North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Port-aux-Basques, Newfoundland, we are (approximately) a 691 kilometer (429.5 mile) drive east along the Trans Canada Highway. The Trans Canada Highway takes you to our front door.


During the summer months you can also reach Newfoundland via the ferry from North Sydney to Argentia, Newfoundland. From Argentia, follow Route 202 to the Trans Canada Highway, then travel west for approximately 109 kilometers (68 miles).


We look forward to meeting you.
