Please Note: The Port aux Basques Buoy has been removed from service for the remainder of the winter season. Buoy will be redeployed in Spring of 2017.

Please note that due to the Winter season and the shortness of days we have had to turn the reporting of the Pilot Boarding Station and Come by Chance buoys back to reporting once every hour. We will revert back to twice per hour in the Spring.

Please be advised that connectivity to the SmartAtlantic web portal will be unavailable from 12:01 am until approximately 4:00 am due to planned network maintenance.
