July 13, 2018 - MV Northern Ranger Update
Nunatsiavut Marine would like to advise the public that the MV Northern Ranger is currently behind schedule due to the unfavourable ice conditions encountered at the beginning of the 2018 season. The vessel will not depart Happy Valley - Goose Bay for her South trip on Friday July 13th as scheduled, but is tentatively scheduled to depart on Saturday, July 14th at 12:00 PM. Boarding will commence at 9:00 AM and all passengers should be on board by 11:00 AM.
The MV Northern Ranger will continue to operate on a load and go basis in an effort to get back on her regular schedule, and is expected to achieve this by early next week. Please continue to monitor our vessel updates page for the latest estimated departure and arrival times.

July 11, 2018 - North and South Coast passenger and freight season off to successful start
Despite the earlier challenges with ice conditions from Makkovik to north of Nain, Nunatsiavut Marine has successfully begun the shipping season with service to both the north and south Labrador coasts. The Northern Ranger has already made a complete trip to the south and north coasts, and is departing Cartwright today enroute to Makkovik and ports north. The Astron is on its way to Goose Bay after stopping at all ports on the north coast.
The freight volume at Nunatsiavut Marine’s warehouses have been average so far this time of year.
Northern Ranger master Captain Scott Chant reports that the presence of growlers and bergy bits has affected the schedule. During last week’s voyage, the ship was only transiting during daylight hours. He also stated that they were navigating as close to shore as was safely possible, in order to stay inside the ice edge. Captain Chant provided some photos of the ice conditions they encountered on the last trip. Ice conditions have improved dramatically and should no longer pose any delays in the schedule. 
The Ranger is on a load and go basis this trip to try and get back to the regular schedule as quickly as possible for all of our community residents and tourists.

July 7, 2018 - M.V. Northern Ranger Routing Update - Revised
Nunatsiavut Marine would like to advise the public that the MV Northern Ranger will depart Happy Valley - Goose Bay on Monday July 9th and call ports Rigolet, Cartwright, and then proceed to Black Tickle. The vessel will then depart Black Tickle and proceed to Cartwright, Makkovik, and all remaining Ports to Nain. Passengers are advised that the vessel will not return to Happy Valley-Goose Bay from South, until completing her North trip to Nain.
In an effort to get back on her regular schedule, upon departing Happy Valley - Goose Bay, the vessel will operate on a load and go basis until further notice. Passengers are reminded that boarding will commence at 10 AM on July 9th. All passengers should be on board by 12:00 PM.
Nunatsiavut Marine apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this temporary routing change. Ice conditions have caused significant delays and we are making every effort to get back on schedule while providing an essential service to the residents of the Labrador Coast.
