The Viewing Decks offer a great opportunity to walk around the ships, as well as take in the beautiful views of the Northumberland Strait. It is quite common to spot seals, birds and often porpoises swimming along side the ships. The Viewing Deck is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy the crossing!
Throughout July to September, don’t miss out on our fantastic Seaside Experiences. During your crossing, immerse yourself in a truly Maritime experience with some of the finest live music, entertainment, food, wine, and beer samplings the region has to offer. Sit back and enjoy incredible ocean views, food, and live entertainment.
Music on Deck
Here’s your golden opportunity to travel by sea, save time, drive less and enjoy some great Maritime music! Northumberland Ferries’ Music on Deck Program showcases some of the best up-and-coming talents in the region, as they perform on deck just for you. All you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the live entertainment—available July through September on the 1:00pm and 2:45pm departures from Wood Islands, Prince Edward Island, and Caribou, Nova Scotia. You may also catch a live musical performance in the ferry terminals on select dates during the summer months. For musicians, apply to become a Music on Deck performer here.
