Rare Historic Find

About our two Astrolabes

Two Astrolabes dated from the early 1600’s were discovered near Channel-Port aux Basques. They are both in mint condition and in working order. A very rare and valuable find for Newfoundland and all of Canada.

Canada's Ferry Gateway to Newfoundland

The gulf crossing between North Sydney and Channel-Port aux Basques is always a memorable lifetime experience. The ferries are among the largest ice breaking ferries in the world. They look like cruise ships and they can each take 1200 passengers and 350 cars. Book early to ensure availability.
