Make The Journey Your Destination

Northumberland Ferries

Make the journey to the Island an unforgettable part of your PEI vacation. This 75-minute sailing has up to nine departures daily from each port in peak season and saves up to 100 km of driving. Once onboard, head up to the Viewing Decks to take in the panoramic views of the Northumberland Strait. It is quite common to spot seals, birds and often porpoises swimming alongside the ships, so keep your eyes peeled!

Summertime crossings feature live music, entertainment and even wine and beer tastings. COWS Ice Cream, Prince Edward Island’s famous summer treat, is available on board the mv Confederation, and the gift shops are stocked with goods created by local merchants from both sides of the Northumberland Strait.

With so much to see and do onboard, you’ll be arriving on the stunning shores of Prince Edward Island before you know it.

Ensure you reserve the crossing of your choice by booking online at ferries.ca or by calling 1-877-762-7245.

Insider’s Tip: As you approach Prince Edward Island, take your camera to the viewing deck to capture the Wood Islands Lighthouse, perched on the Island’s signature red shores.
