Travellers from around the world have been making memories on Northumberland Ferries for more than 80 years. It’s a right of passage for any maritime adventure. In fact, when you take the ferry to PEI, it’s more than a convenient way to arrive on the Island — it’s an opportunity to recharge, relax, and rediscover the magic of the sea. If you’re planning to visit the Island, here are five reasons to start your journey aboard mv Confederation or mv Holiday Island.
As soon as you step foot on the ferry to PEI, you can feel it — the kick off of your vacation. It’s a time when you can officially say your getaway is beginning. After all, the ferry is more than the start of your island adventure. It offers beautiful scenic views, unforgettable hospitality, and opportunities to make memories you’ll treasure forever — transforming any trip from routine to extraordinary.
The journey is as important as the destination. On the ferry, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy every moment of that journey. You can say so long to the worries of the road! Where’s the next gas station? Don’t worry! Did we miss our exit? No chance! Instead, put your feet up, enjoy the atmosphere, and truly experience your voyage to PEI.
With a name like the Maritimes, it only makes sense that you should see our scenic region from the sea. A trip on the ferry to PEI allows you to take in the natural beauty of the Maritimes in a way you can’t appreciate from the window of your car. Thanks to our outdoor seating area, you can breathe in the fresh sea air and look out at the majesty of the water as the ferry takes you from Caribou, Nova Scotia, to Wood Islands, PEI.
The car can get a little dull after a long drive, can’t it? Maybe the kids are in the backseat with their headphones on. Perhaps your spouse is having a nap on the passenger side. But, on the ferry, your family can spend time together watching for seals, birds, and even porpoises from our viewing decks, and more. There’s simply no comparison between a trip in the car and a trip aboard the ferry to PEI.
There’s no doubt about it, a ferry ride is a must-have experience for adventurers travelling to PEI. It’s more than just incredible views (though, trust us, they are incredible). It’s the chance to kick off your island getaway with a special journey shared with the entire family. There’s no doubt about it, from the moment you set sail, you’ll understand why taking the ferry to PEI is an essential part of your vacation.
