Photo: Newfoundland Ferry Apollo

Journey aboard the Strait of Belle Isle Ferry named the Apollo that links Newfoundland and the Labrador areas of the Province.

This ferry is the main transportation between Newfoundland and Labrador that is owned and operated by the Provincial Government of both Newfoundland and Labrador. The ferry is known as the Apollo and runs daily usually from May 1 to the middle of January depending on the Arctic ice and the temperatures around the area.The Apollo only began operating in the year 2000 and replaced another ferry known as the Northern Princess. The Apollo is a much larger ferry that can carry more passengers and can hold more vehicles, tractor trailer trucks and RVs than the Northern Princess could.The ferry goes between Newfoundland and Labrador at least once every day and sometimes more depending on the demand and each trip is about one and a half hours. Aboard the Apollo there is a cafeteria/restaurant, elegant dining room used for special ferry crossings, a craft store and lots of window seats to provide passengers with a view. ... continue below the picture...
