Prince Edward Island / Îles de la Madeleine Ferry Sail with us to the islands

Do you want to access the ferry and there is no room for your travel dates?

The CTMA has set up a privilege list system to residents of the Magdalen Islands.

Here’s how to do it:

• You must contact us by phone or go to the Cap-aux-Meules terminal to register on a waiting list for a specific date.

• You must present a double-sided copy of a valid driver’s licence with an address indicating a postal code starting with G4T to register on a waiting list. If you are applying by phone, please email a copy of your driver’s licence to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

• You can only register on a waiting list if you are registered as a passenger on the reservation (no request for another person will be accepted).

• You must have the following information: name and age group of all passengers and precise dimensions of the vehicle.

• No payment is required to register on a waiting list.

• If you already have a reservation for another date, your payment will be automatically transferred to the new reservation if a space becomes available for you on the desired date.

• If you do not have another reservation, you will have to make the payment by phone when a space becomes available and your reservation is confirmed.

• We will contact you by phone to let you know that a place is available for you on the desired date. In case of non-response, a message will be left and you will have a period of one (1) working day to call us back to confirm the reservation. After this time, the available space will be offered to someone else.

• You can only register on one (1) waiting list per week; you must therefore choose the date you prefer.

• If an additional trip(s) is (are) added during the same week of your preferred date, we will contact you to offer you a place on that trip before it is accessible to all.

• Waiting lists will be blocked 72 hours before departure. After this time, you can always queue (standby) for the desired date.
