A Trip to Remember

Northumberland Ferries Ltd.

Celebrate with Northumberland Ferries for their monumental season! For 80 years, the ferries have been making the trip between Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia a memorable journey for all its passengers. With each Northumberland Strait crossing, those onboard the ferry to and from PEI have gathered years of fond memories as they begin and end their vacations.

The 75 minute car ferry trip between Wood Islands, PEI and Caribou, Nova Scotia gives passengers the freedom to roam, catch a refreshing sea breeze and salt spray, and take in unforgettable Seaside Experiences, including a showcase of the finest music, entertainment, food, wine, and beer the region has to offer.

Book the ferry in advance for any of the nine departure times (during peak season) and save up to 100km of driving between Halifax and Charlottetown. Relax, stretch your legs, and enjoy the stunning panoramic views. With so much to see and do onboard, you’ll be disembarking before you know it.

Start by tapping your toes to some live music during your journey. Local musicians from PEI and Nova Scotia perform on afternoon sailings from July through September.

Finally, grab a bite to eat in one of the onboard cafés. Enjoy a meal overlooking the Northumberland Strait with a selection of both hot and cold menu items. And don’t forget to save room for dessert—the famous COWS Ice Cream is available onboard the mv Confederation and creamy soft-serve on mv Holiday Island.

Join in on the 80th season celebrations and reserve the crossing of your choice by booking online at or by calling 1-877-762-7245.
