Galleons Passage finally docks in Tobago

The Galleons Passage docked in Tobago on Saturday after a four hour journey.

The Galleons Passage docked in Tobago on Saturday after a four hour journey.

Minister of Works Rohan Sinanan has assured the people of Tobago that the sea bridge will get better very shortly.

This assurance came as the Galleons Passage finally docked in Tobago on Saturday. 

The journey lasted four hours. 

Saturday's successful docking came after the ferry failed to dock earlier this month because the ramp was not appropriate. 

Speaking to Loop, Sinanan said a significantly smaller ramp than that which is used for the T&T Spirit, was installed 

"What we are doing, we are going through the process of having the vessel into service. Tobago has been very patient with us and the vessel will be put into service shortly and the sea bridge will only get better going forward," he said, noting the arrival of two new fast ferries in 2020. 

He said the certification process for the Galleons Passage is still ongoing but he is confident it will be in service shortly.
