    Wifi is free but slow. The Quay Market is a clean building to waste time in.

    Service here is horrible but they don't care because unless you want to fly to the islands there is no there way to get there. Ticket staff like to chat instead of sell tickets sometimes. Frustrating

    Ne mangez pas sur le Traversier. Arrêtez au Marché, la nourriture y est au moins décente.

    Announcements in the shop area are way to quiet. Need to increase the volume, as tons of people miss the announcements and end up running for the ferry lines when loading has already begun.

    Make sure you make reservations on long weekends and in summer! You can purchase your tickets here at the visitor centre! The ferry terminal is about 35 minutes from the border.

    Remember to pay for parking. If you forget to pay then you can phone the terminal attendent and they will place an IOU envelope on your dash and you pay when you go back to your car.

    If you're late, just drive up the ramp to the ferry without being directed to. It's really funny and everyone will see the humour. The ferry workers will give you high-fives as you pass them!
