Le Cabestan is clearly a solid transportation company with a good ferry. The travel itself is about one hour each way. The comfort of the ferry is largely determined by the condition of the sea, which obviously they do not control. One thing they can...More

With a friendly bilingual crew. On both crossings Le Cabestan arrived a few minutes ahead of time. Whilst in port in SPM they even had free Wi-Fi on board (don't know that from ferries in mainland France...). Merci beaucoup pour un agréable traversée!

Enjoyable 55 minute ferry service between St. Pierre et Miquelon (France) and Fortune, NL. Ticketing and boarding was very well organised.

The ferry to St. Pierre was very comfortable, and the staff was most helpful. At first it seemed a bit pricey, but when I thought about it, it wasn't bad at all.
