Ferry from Caribou to PEI

Ferries run to PEI

A visit to relaxing Prince Edward Island, Canada’s smallest province, is easily combined with a trip to Nova Scotia.

Way back when we were kids, you had to take the ferry. Now there’s a choice.

Either drive past Amherst and just over the border to New Brunswick, where the Confederation Bridge links the mainland with PEI, or take the ferry.

If you’re in eastern Nova Scotia, taking the ferry saves a lot of driving time.

It’s not that expensive either. Adults can sail for just $15 and vehicles with a small camper pay $61. There’s a $7 fuel surcharge per vehicle.

From May 1 to late December, the boat leaves from Caribou (near Pictou) and arrives in Wood Islands on PEI just 75 minutes later. There are at least 3 sailings a day in each direction and up to 9 in peak season.

To book, call 1-877-635-7245 toll-free or reserve a space online. We find the booking system clunky. It might not be worth the hassle.
