Hermel exhibition opens at Sept-Iles

The Port of Sept-Îles, in partnership with Destination Sept-Îles Nakauinanu, officially opened the Hermel exhibition site August 14 in the Port of Sept-Îles Marina building.

As part of the strategy promoting Sept-Îles as an international cruise destination, the port and Destination Sept-Îles Nakauinanu wanted to make the Hermel accessible to cruise passengers, as well as tourists and locals. To do so, they renovated the marina building to create a space dedicated to this remarkable transatlantic watercraft. An interactive console sits next to the Hermel, allowing visitors to learn about the famous rowboat and its 129-day voyage across the Atlantic.
