    You are correct it was somewhere in late June when the ferry started running. Last year the ferry schedule was Sunday and Tuesday. Sorry, not sure how late in the season it runs.

    5PM departure from Goose Bay > Cartwright Sundays and Tuesdays. $88.85 fare for bike/rider. Additional $51 for a bed. Not bad.

    I wonder if they fill up mid Sep?
