"Car Ferry MV 'Madeleine'" Île du Cap aux Meules Transportation Tip by Bwana_Brown

  Motor Vessel 'Madeleine' Docking in PEI
by Bwana_Brown

We booked ourselves for passage on the car-ferry Madeleine, about 2-weeks before we planned to leave. In peak season, it is best to book even further in advance. The Madeleine is a 400 foot, 6800 ton, 20 knot Roll-On Roll-Off ferry, capable of carrying 700 passengers as well as numerous vehicles and semi-trailer trucks. She was built in Cork, Ireland in 1981 and began her life as the 'Isle of Inisturk' in the Irish Ferry service. The Madeleine was purchased in July, 1997 to take over the PEI run for the islands. This particular route leaves Souris, PEI at 2 PM in the afternoon for the 5-hour run, and returns with an 8 AM departure from the Islands. During the heavy ice months of February and March voyages can be dependent on the weather conditions.
