The Sir Robert Bond in Corner Brook Monday.
The ferry, which operates between Corner Brook and Blanc Sablon, has been plagued with delays over the past couple of weeks due to heavy ice in the Strait of Belle Isle.
It has been depending on assistance from Canadian Coast Guard icebreakers in making the crossing.
The company will post further updates to its website, www.labradorferry.ca, as they become available.
