“From the moment you begin your journey aboard the boat that takes you to Battle Harbour…”
HAVE YOU HEARD THE WORD? The road from Blanc Sablon is now paved all the way to Mary’s Harbour.
As Battle Harbour is an island, the MV Trinity Pride will take you from the mainland at Mary’s Harbour to our wharf in Battle Harbour.
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.
While we recommend that you come for at least one, preferably two or more nights to get the true Battle Harbour experience, we realize time does not allow everyone to do so. If you can only come for the day, Cloud 9 Boat Charters and Tours
can get you to the island and back each day. They leave our wharf in Mary’s Harbour 11am daily. Their boat departs Battle Harbour at 4pm, getting you back to Mary’s Harbour at 5pm.
