Public Advisory: Update Provided on MV Legionnaire

Users of the Bell Island ferry service are advised that the MV Legionnaire is out of service due to a mechanical issue with its bow ramp.

During that time, ferry services will continue to be provided by the MV Flanders on the one vessel enhanced schedule.

A technician from the ramp’s manufacturer is travelling to the site to begin repairs and the MV Legionnaire is expected to be back in service by the end of the week.

Additional information on the Bell Island service and other intra-provincial services can be found at or by calling 1-833-NLFERRY (653-3779).

The Department of Transportation and Works apologizes for the disruption in service.
