2021 Service Announcement

On February 1, 2021, the Province of Nova Scotia announced the suspension of the Nova Scotia to Maine ferry service for the 2021 season due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

We look forward to serving you again as soon as the international land borders are reopened and public health circumstances allow.

When a journey from Maine to Nova Scotia calls, the open ocean answers. And aboard The CAT, it’s the shortest route. You might say, it’s nature’s finest short cut from one coastal paradise to another.
