Port of Les Îles de la Madeleine Shuttles
YGR airport transfers
Sharing the same port as the town’s main ferry terminal, the Port of Les Îles de la Madeleine is the main gateway for cruise ships visiting the narrow Nova Scotia islands. Ensure the beauty of each moment by having a ride ready to showcase the day, whether that means utilizing one of three boats departing at the end of Ferry Ramp Road, or having one of many private rentals ready for pick up, from small sedans ideal for coastline drives along the scenic 199 highway, to spacious chartered buses and vans that can carry at least a dozen passengers for lookouts worthy of bringing everyone along. Besides the convenience of being the driver, meet-and-greet services offer a different kind of easy, whether it be through the personal tips of local personal drivers and possibly even taxis, or unmatched elegance to calm the culture shock via chauffeured limousines.
When the boat arrives, cruise goers may want to go with the flow of the island, but travelers should also heed the importance of planning - a friendly place to get good info close to the port is Bureau d'information Touristique des Îles de la Madeleine, a famed yellow cottage that offers close access to scenic bluffs as well as the knockabouts on how to reach them. Also close to the port are several local restaurants along the town’s central Chemin Principal (Main Way), from the colorful art-filled ambiance at Les Pas Perdus to the coffee-fueled conversations of Bistro Café d'chez-nous, each open morning to night. Beyond the obvious, especially unique landmarks are a bit tougher to find, including the admirable all-wooden interior of the Catholic Church of Saint-Pierre-de-la-Vernière as well as the distant lookouts from Cape Lighthouse on the west end of the island, while central mountain peaks provide gorgeous lookouts from the not-too-offset trails of Parc des Buck.
