Ferry Shortage

Getting ferry reservations with a few days notice was easy coming to Newfoundland.  We found out yesterday that leaving is a different story.  Just for the heck of it I logged onto the Marine Atlantic site to check what the sailings looked like and discovered the earliest available opening was 12 days out, August 9th.  Steve  called Marine Atlantic this morning and after a long hold found out that some people call every single hour hoping there’s a cancellation.  Plus the ferry line doesn’t allow waiting in line for standby, at least not during the busy season.  The agent was very nice and suggested we continuously check online for a cancellation opening, jump on it, then call to cancel our August 9th reservation.
