Marine Atlantic ferries are crossing the Cabot Strait again after high winds and high seas kept the boats dockside overnight.

Gusting winds forced the company to cancel Monday’s 11:45 p.m. crossing out of North Sydney and Port aux Basques. They were rescheduled to leave at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, but put off until 11:45 a.m.

Environment Canada issued a gale warning for the Cabot Strait, but the latest forecast calls for winds to die down on Tuesday afternoon.

Marine Atlantic said it recommends customers check their website or call 1-800-341-7981 for updated information.
