Help isn't coming soon!
Here is an important tip, most people visit this area right now in the summer busy tourist season.
If you happen to be in the area in the winter be warned that if you get stuck in this type of snow clearing dilemma you could be in serious trouble.
This picture was taken by a local resident, I know as well during the 2004 winter season one family escaped a certain death as they got stuck in a winter storm and they car was literally buried over. Rescuers managed to spot the antana of the car and where able to rescue them. But these people were extrememly lucky!!!!
In the summer one of the most popular ways to get to the Labrador Straits seems to be by boat leaving from St. Barbe, Newfoundland.
It is a short crossing across the Straight of Belle Isle. It takes a little over an hour but on most days it is like a short tour, get yourself out on the deck and enjoy the smell of salt water.
It is another great view to get some pictures of whales so keep your eyes open. Binoculars would be good to have here as well.
On certain crossings it can be a little bit rough but not often. The MV Apollo is a newer boat on this service and the people there like this boat a lot. It is very nice inside as well.
I have a web site listed where you can get current schedules and pricing information.
