Once upon a time, the Ferry was the only way to get to Prince Edward Island, some say it still is! Make the journey to the Island an unforgettable part of your PEI vacation. Come aboard, lounge on the viewing decks and enjoy the sea-salt air as the wind whips through your hair and you soak in some rays. In the summer months, follow the sounds on deck to the toe tapping live Maritime music and join in the sing along!
The crossing is 75 minutes and Northumberland Ferries has up to nine departures daily from each port in peak season. COWS Ice Cream, Prince Edward Island’s most famous summer treat is available on board the mv Confederation. Taste test the creatively named ice cream flavours if you can’t decide on just one. With so much to see and do onboard the mv Confederation and mv Holiday Island ferries, you’ll hear the words, “Please prepare for disembarkation” before you know it…and you might just be a small bit disappointed your ferry ride to the Island is over. The upside, you’ve landed in paradise rested and ready to explore!

Insider’s Tip: As you approach Prince Edward Island, take your camera to the viewing deck to capture your first snapshot of PEI’s red shores where the Wood Island’s Lighthouse is perched along the cliff.
