The Strait of Belle Isle is opening up to blue water, finally. The ferry that operates in the Straits, the MV Apollo, has resumed service with her departure today from Corner Brook, NL to Blanc Sablon, PQ.

We are looking forward to having the regular ferry runs from Blanc Sablon, PQ to St. Barbe, NL reinstated.

The MV Apollo will be a great place to view the reported "bumper crop" of icebergs on our way. The icebergs may be around well into the summer and then there will also be the seabirds and whales to entertain you.
