Another Great Summer Season for the Argentia Service!

by Darrell Mercer

We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun……okay, the sun wasn’t always there, but we still had a great summer season in Argentia. With passenger bookings up over 13 percent and an incredible travel experience being had by so many, this year’s service reinforced why Argentia is a destination of choice for people travelling to eastern Newfoundland.


Through my own travel experience this year, I can say first-hand that the beautiful scenery of Placentia Bay and the Cape Breton coastline, the sunset and sunrise over water, the majestic ocean smell and breeze, and the friendly staff made a lasting impression. For the many tourists travelling with me, this was a unique adventure never experienced before.


This time of year always presents us with mixed emotions. We are pleased that we were part of the journey for so many people, yet saying Bon Voyage to Argentia for another year means the summer season is officially over. As they say, all good things must come to an end……or in this case, take a break for 8 months.


We thank the many thousands of customers who used our Argentia service this year, and extend a big thank you to our dedicated and hard-working employees who make the overall travel experience more special. While July was a bit soggy there for a bit, our enthusiasm for the journey was never dampened.


If you are already thinking about your travel plans for next year, our new schedule will be available for booking in a few short months. Argentia may be the right option for you. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
