Can't decide on day or night ferry from N. Sydney to Port aux Baux

Jump to last reply

If I take the day ferry on Thursday, Sept. 3 it arrives at Port aux Baux at 18:30. Seems to me that I wouldn't arrive at lodging at Corner Brook until 9:30 or 10:00 p. m. (I'd want to spend some time eating dinner). I never like arriving so late and in the dark, especially in a place I've never been.

Is there any decent place to stay in or near Channel Port aux Basque or on the road to Corner Brook, where I'd not arrive too late--say within an hour of the Port?

If I were to take the night ferry on Thur. Sept. 3, I'd arrive at 7:00 a.m. in Channel Port. Is either Corner Brook or Deer Lake worth visiting or is it best to keep going toward Gros Morn? Driving, on a not very good night's sleep, from Channel Port, through the Tabelands onto Rocky Harbor, seems less than desirable to me, if there is an alternative.

If I had my druthers, I'd prefer the day ferry--but don't like arriving at lodging so late at night (9:30 or 10:00 p.m.) Any suggestions?
