Re: Does it cost anything to port in Nova Scotia or Newfoundland?
Cannot find any specific info on moorage rates in NS or NFLD.. generally in Canada anchoring is free, unless it's not permitted (in aircraft and commercial traffic lanes.)
While I expect rates would be less than Vancouver's typical $1.00 to $1.75/ft/day for transients (less for long term/monthly/annual) you might end up paying $.25 to $.50/ft/day for a modest vessel at a 'Government dock' and more at a commercial marina. But that's just a guess, those economies are not strong and rates could be quite low.
