Prolongation of cabestan exploitation

Cat :

This weekend, we received the navigation licenses for both ferries in national and international waters. These documents were indispensable for the beginning of the commercial operation of the ships on Miquelon and Fortune. The operation of the Cabestan will however be extended by a few days in order to allow us to carry out, under the best conditions, the tests with the Nordet so that it is at the same level of exploitation as the Suroit. The cabestan should leave our waters by May 26th.

Commissionning of ferries

Cat :
The Territorial Community of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon is pleased to announce the commissioning of its new ferries SUROÎT and NORDET.

On May 14, 2018, SPM Ferries commissions the vessel SUROIT. With a capacity of 188 passengers and 18 vehicles, the SUROIT will replace the  Cabestan which should leave our islands at the same dates.

The ship NORDET (sister ship) will follow the path of the SUROIT a month later.

The service will start with passenger transport only at first.

These two vessels will improve the accessibility of our territory and thus facilitate transportation between the islands and with Newfoundland. With a greater number of trips, a new direct connection between Miquelon and Fortune twice a week in summer, the Territorial Community of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon strives to facilitate and improve the quality of transport offered.

2017 promises to be a year of change. In fact, the Cabestan will be replaced by two ferries at the end of 2017. The Collectivity commissioned two ferries from the company DAMEN SHIPYARDS, to improve travel between Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, and also to allow visitors from Newfoundland to more easily discover the archipelago.  

Each of these two identical ferries will be able to carry 190 passengers, vehicles and recreational vehicles. They will provide service between Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, Saint-Pierre and Fortune and Miquelon and Fortune.

The Jeune France will continue to provide service between Saint-Pierre and Langlade.

killer whalesIn June, the Jeune France will resume offering its tours and sea cruises. After two initial seasons, the guided tours will have a new format and will be more diversified. The Grand Colombier, Cap Percé and Pointe Plate tours will remain, but we are offering a new tour entitled Whale and finback whale watching. With this tour, there is no planned route – SPM Ferries leaves it up to the captain and his keen eye to create the best itinerary so that you can enjoy an encounter with these sea mammals, while respecting them.
