Port activities
Until 1997, the Chandler wharf was used mainly for the commercial operations of the Gaspesia company, shipping newsprint overseas. Since 2003, it has been a stopover on the passenger service to the Magdalen Islands, visited twice weekly from June to the end of September by the vessel CTMA VACANCIER. It also receives shipments of salt for local road de-icing. This wharf is closed from December to April, except in case of need.

Secondary role(s) of facilities
The wharf and approach form a breakwater providing protection for the bay and waterfront properties.

There is no channel between the wharf and navigable waters.
