There are three convenient ways to arrive on Prince Edward Island. From New Brunswick, cross the dramatic Confederation Bridge, a journey which takes about 10 minutes and brings you to Borden-Carleton in the southwestern region of the province. Or make the journey from Nova Scotia with Northumberland Ferries, a crossing which operates May through mid-December. The mini-cruise takes about 75 minutes and docks in Wood Islands in the province's southeastern region. Regardless of where you arrive, the size and crescent shape of the Island make it easy to begin your tour at one entry point and end at the other. And remember, you only pay a toll when you leave!
