The “Strait Eagle”, (formerly the “Placentia Pilot”) has been re-launched in the Strait of Canso. Owned and operated by Superport Marine Services Ltd, the boat has been completely rebuilt after being badly damaged in an accident in Placentia Bay in May 2006.
It is anticipated that the “Strait Eagle” will be the primary pilot vessel for the Strait of Canso area.
Pilotage & Other Charges
The Pilotage Act requires that pilotage tariffs be fixed at a level that permits the Authority to operate on a self-sustaining financial basis, and that the tariffs set be fair and reasonable. The goal is to have each area become financially self-sufficient to eliminate cross-subsidization among ports.
