Following the gradual lifting of lockdown restrictions announced by the government of Quebec and as we are heading into the summer months, the Rivière-du-Loup/Saint-Siméon Ferry is pleased to announce that it will broaden its offer by providing 3 departures per day, starting this Sunday, June 21st.
Therefore, the MV Trans-Saint-Laurent will leave from Rivière-du-Loup at 8 am, noon and 4 pm while the departures from Saint-Siméon will take place at 9:30 am, 2 pm and 5:30 pm on a weekly basis.
Please note that our customers are still being requested to keep a social distance of 2 meters between themselves and to wear a protective mask. The exterior decks and the passengers lounge will be reopened. However, as per the latest federal guidelines, the restaurant will remain closed until further notice; water bottles will be available upon request. Moreover, our customers will be asked to provide a credit or a debit card since payments in cash are no longer possible on our ferry.
In the current context of COVID-19, Transports Canada has set up guidelines so that passengers will be able to remain in their vehicle for the entire time of the crossing. The crew reserves the right to prohibit this special authorisation on poor weather conditions.
