Can you still take a ferry to the island?

Answer by:

Hello Sean,

Good news! Yes, you can still take a ferry to Prince Edward Island and it is a wonderful way to travel!

The Northumberland Ferry operates between Caribou, Nova Scotia and Wood Islands, PEI. In summer, there are several crossings each day of the week. The ferry ride is about 75 minutes long. Sometimes there is live entertainment on board during peak summer months. COWS Ice Cream is a nice treat to have while on board, and there is a café as well if you want more.

Please take some time to check more information as well as reserve your crossing at this link.

Enjoy your ride!
