Marine Atlantic operates an essential service with voyages of less than 24 hours and passengers are therefore not required by the Government of Canada mandate to be vaccinated to use the service.
Customers travelling with Marine Atlantic are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated and are required to follow the procedures in place to protect health and safety and mitigate against the spread of COVID-19.
Additionally, Marine Atlantic contractors, or anyone entering Marine Atlantic property that is not considered a customer, are required to show proof of vaccination starting November 15, 2021.
This will include anyone entering our terminal properties on behalf of customers to perform services, such as mechanical repair or towing services. It does not include customers dropping off or picking up drop trailer units, we-load units, or freight.
