Delivery of Armand-Imbeau II

MS Armand-Imbeau II was delivered two weeks ago to Tadoussac―Baie-Sainte-Catherine. The LNG-powered vessel was manufactured at Davie in Lévis. Jos-Deschênes II, her sister, is expected some time soon. The delivery of both ships is two years late.


New departure

A pilot project has been set up at the Entry Island―Cap-aux-Meules. A new departure, with reservation only, is now offered on Friday, around lunch time.
