It Pays to Travel with Us

Are you transporting 200,000 fresh Malpeque oysters, two tonnes of aluminum, or even a fully operational lighthouse? It pays to travel with Northumberland Ferries Limited and Bay Ferries Limited.

Spend less time on the road, and more time resting and reducing the fatigue and frustrations of driving. With our variety of onboard amenities and full range of services, you’ll wonder why you didn’t travel with us sooner—especially when you’re saving time and money at the end of the day.
