  • Fuel Surcharge

    Marine Atlantic's fuel surcharge is currently 15 per cent.

    Why do I have to pay a fuel surcharge?

    The surcharge is part of Marine Atlantic's fuel hedging strategy and aims to strike a balance between the Canadian taxpayer's contribution to the service, the stakeholder's share of the cost, and the Corporation's effort to contain operational expenses. The surcharge allows us to recoup some of the fuelling cost of our vessels, as they continue to rise in the current oil market. To that end, we strive to be as energy efficient as possible during our operations.

    We ask for your continued support and cooperation as we strive to maintain the quality of service you have come to expect from Marine Atlantic.
