A Trip to Remember

Northumberland Ferries

Join the celebrations as Northumberland Ferries remembers 80 years of welcoming passengers on and off the ferry! The journey to the Island across the Northumberland Strait has always been an unforgettable part of the classic PEI vacation.

With up to nine departures daily from each port in peak season, this 75-minute car ferry trip will save you driving and offer a unique journey between PEI and Nova Scotia. 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 shop is 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.

Join in on the 80th season celebrations and 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.
