The Best Way to Get to PEI

Making your way to and from Prince Edward Island is a dazzling adventure no matter how you choose to do it. Deciding to travel with Northumberland Ferries is the perfect way to take a break from driving and experience the local flavour before your feet even touch red Island soil! With live music, local food and drinks and the salty ocean breeze, the ferry will become your non-negotiable way of travelling. Here’s a sneak peak at the sights, and even a few behind-the-scenes looks, of that ferry life.


The Wood Islands Lighthouse will capture your heart before you even step on or off the ship.


There’s nothing like kicking off your vacation with the smell of salty, ocean air.


Ever wonder what it’s like in the bridge of the ferry? Hard work, concentration, and a really, really, great view.


Your toes will be tappin’ and your hands will be clappin’ on deck with local live music during your trip.


Beginning to end you’ll find views worth seeing. You’ll run to the deck to check out those little in between spots too!


Watching the sun set on the ocean is a whole other level of beauty.


With the Salt Water Cafe and COWS ice cream on board, you get to taste the Island before you even get there.


And finally, you can daydream about life on the water as you wave hello to a passing ferry at sea.
