Alcohol on ferry to Newfoundland

This may be a very stupid question, but I wanna make before we our trip! Can we bring alcohol on the ferry from North Sydney to Argentia? The alcohol will be kept in the trunk of my car during the thanks!

There is nothing on their website saying you can't bring it....I'd say you will be fine, especially since you are leaving it in the car....

being from the States your only issue could be the limitations when be crossing the border into Canada. It is a not an issue on the ferry.

Thank you for correcting my error, Rescue Team. On my browser I only saw "United" and assumed it was United States rather than United Kingdom.

Inter-provincial trade/transport of alcohol is controlled. I know they were trying to repeal that law back in 2012/2013. I don't know the status of enforcement now, you should be able to find it online.
