Cruise Ship Season Has Arrived

Roberta Bondar Park is host to several cruise ship visits throughout the summer and early fall. The ships that come into port will be bringing approximately 3,500 visitors combined to Sault Ste. Marie this season. The ship visits vary from early morning arrival to late evening departures depending on the vessel’s direction. 

Before a ship’s visit and until departure, Transport Canada outlines security regulations that, as a port facility, the City must adhere to. These regulations require fencing to be put up along the waterfront portion of the Hub Trail in front of the Roberta Bondar Pavilion to secure this area from the public. Signage is also in place denoting the restricted area. An alternate route for the public is to walk under the Roberta Bondar Pavilion which connects to the Hub Trail on both sides.

Ship visits are May 31, June 7, July 20, 27, August 11, 18, 25, September 1, 16, and 23. The public is welcome to visit the Roberta Bondar Park to view the ships however, they are asked to be respectful of the regulations while the ships are in port.
