  • MV Leif Ericson

    The MV Leif Ericson is our dedicated commercial ferry travelling the North Sydney - Port aux Basques route. Named to mark the 1000th anniversary of Norse explorer Leif Ericson arriving in the New World - nearly 500 years before Christopher Columbus - we have recently invested over $15 million in this vessel to better serve our valued clients.
