Viking Cruise Ship Octantis Set to Arrive on May 27th at 6 PM


THUNDER BAY – NEWS – The Thunder Bay CEDC, City of Thunder Bay and Tourism Thunder Bay, are gearing up to welcome the Viking cruise ship Octantis at Pool 6 on May 27th, 2022, at 6 pm EST. The vessel will be in port until May 29th, 2022, at 5 am EST.
Tourism Manager Paul Pepe says, “Given the size and uniqueness of the Viking Octantis, we know that many residents are interested in seeing it up close. Pool 6 is a federally regulated cruise facility, and access to the vessel will be limited to authorized personnel and guest only”.
“If residents and tourism partners wish to view the ship in port, we ask that people park at Prince Arthur’s Landing and walk or choose another vantage point offsite, like Hillcrest Park.
“Parking will not be allowed along the road to Pool 6 and traffic control will be in place to reduce congestion while the vessel is in port.
The Alexander Henry museum ship will be operational and accessible during the vessel stay.
