If you come off a night sailing it would be no problem it is around 625 KM or I would think 7.5-8 hr drive slow going off the trans Canada up to Twilingate but you are also by passing Gros morne Park.

We have driven all the way to St. John's in one day. Port aux Basques to Twillingate is do-able in a day but you won't have time to see much along the way.

Do not get off the ferry at night and drive - too many moose.

I'd say if you came off the night ferry and did not have a cabin to sleep in, it might be sketchy to take a long drive right away. The PAB ferry is not long enough to really get a good rest (both times I used it, it arrived ahead of schedule) and you might feel tired for the rest of the day.
