A Trip to Remember

Northumberland Ferries

Make the trip to and from the Island in the safest way possible! 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 relax and the assurance knowing that the journey each way has been thought through for their safety. Passengers now have the option of staying in their vehicle during the voyage or going to the passenger decks.

New guidelines are in place to make your trip as safe as possible. Passengers are asked to bring and wear their own face coverings during embarking/disembarking and washroom use, complete a self-declaration form online and provide a copy of the completed form at the first point of entry to the province.

Cars and walk-on passengers will now book the ferry in advance for any of the departure times happening seven days a week and save up to 100km of driving between Halifax and Charlottetown. Relax, stretch your legs, and enjoy the stunning panoramic views. With this trip being a mini-vacation in itself, you’ll be disembarking before you know it.

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.
