Getting Here

Zoom in to find us in the Labrador Sea!

From the moment you begin your journey aboard the boat that takes you to Battle Harbour…
As Battle Harbour is an island, the Trinity Pride will take you from the mainland at Mary’s Harbour to our wharf.
There is one trip each day, departing Mary’s Harbour at 11:00 am. Be sure to give yourself some extra time to look at the displays and talk to our staff at our Visitor Interpretation Center in Mary’s Harbour before the 11am departure. The return ferry departs Battle Harbour 9:00 am each day. The voyage takes about an hour. Whales, dolphins and porpoises are a common sight on you way to and from the island, so have your binoculars and camera handy. Many guests will be coming from or going to the island of Newfoundland. This is accessed by the ferry Apollo in Blanc Sablon. You should allow at least three hours to travel between Mary’s Harbour and Blanc Sablon. Better still, spend an extra night or two exploring Southern Labrador’s Coastal Drive. Below you will find the driving distances to Mary’s Harbour from common starting points. You should ensure your passage on the Labrador ferry by making reservations with Labrador Marine. Please note that the ferry Apollo’s schedule changes over the season and departure times are not the same each day. If you would rather fly, Provincial Airlines offers flights to Blanc Sablon and Goose Bay.
