Northumberland Ferries Limited

Two provinces separated by the sea. United by tradition.

Since 1941, Northumberland Ferries has been transporting passengers and their vehicles between Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. In fact, you probably remember taking the ferry as a child – it’s time to make those special memories again with your family! This 75-minute ferry trip runs across the Northumberland Strait between Wood Islands, Prince Edward Island and Caribou, Nova Scotia, just outside of historic Pictou. Walk or drive aboard our vessels – the mv Confederation and the mv Holiday Island – then relax, stretch your legs, and experience the beauty of the Maritime sea and sky.

Experience Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island

There is plenty waiting for you on both sides of the sea. In Nova Scotia, marvel at the world’s highest tides, legendary whale watching, majestic lighthouses, and extraordinary beaches. Nova Scotia has outdoor adventures, vibrant city life, and everything in between. Fall into PEI’s easy, relaxed pace and find out why this gentle island is famous for so many things: world-class golf, renowned culinary scene, literary heroine Anne of Green Gables, fun-filled festivals and events, and some of the most stunning beaches you’ll ever see. And of course, the Island’s signature red soil.
