Marine Atlantic is the singular year-round ocean-going route between North Sydney, Nova Scotia and Port Aux Basques, Newfoundland. Our reliable sailings and comfortable vessels form an important part of the backbone of the Newfoundland and Labrador tourism industry with over 300,000 passengers enjoying our service each year. 

Your voyage from North Sydney to Port aux Basques places you at the gateway to one of the world’s most spectacular driving tours. Follow the Viking Trail up Newfoundland’s western coast, through to the beauty of Gros Morne National Park.

Continue up the coast to the awesome L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site, then on to the Basque Whaling Station at Red Bay, Labrador, a National Historic Site in its own right. This is the Power of Three — a jaw-dropping UNESCO trio that starts with one Marine Atlantic voyage.
