Ferry to Canada

Famous for awe-inspiring backdrops and wildlife in abundance, Canada is a true masterpiece of nature. However, whilst the North American country is sparsely populated, the charismatic cities of Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto offer vibrant getaways from the tranquil backcountry.

With its generally colder climate, it is a hub for outdoor winter activities. Whistler Mountain in British Columbia has great powder for snowboarding, you can surf the swells in Nova Scotia or kayak down the magnificent South Nahanni River in Northwest Territories.

As you would expect, Canada also has some of the world's most impressive parks. The Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve is located in the southernmost Haida Gwaii, 130 kilometres from the western coast and has a total landmass of almost 4,000 square miles. It boasts hot springs, ancient totem poles, burial caves as well as humpback whales frequently seen around its 150 tiny islands.

However, Canada has far more than just impressive lakes and forests. Vancouver offers a vibrant and classy nightlife with upmarket bars and restaurants overlooking a gorgeous marina, whilst Montreal's 18th Century architecture and contemporary art scene are sure to excite any traveller.

A visit to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto is also a must, as it is one of the largest natural history museums in North America.

To get a real taste of Canadian culture, be sure to sample some of the local fish, cheese and baked goods in the Granville Island Public Market. Be on the lookout for national favourites such as poutine, Montreal-style bagels and salmon jerky.

Canada reviews

  • "Happy ending"

    We set out from Chester NS at 07-15 to drive to Digby to catch the ferry to St John, New Brunswick, in appalling weather, torrential rain plus pretty high wind at one point. Really worried that we would miss the boat, but hadn't realised how easy it was to get to, we had thought we had to drive to Digby then find the ferry terminal...wrong, all we did was follow highway 101 to the end then follow the signs...just drove in, in plenty of time. Then drove onto the ship, guided by good humoured, polite staff. We had comfortable seats, good coffee, fast wi-fi, very clean modern washrooms, in fact it was all excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending this service to anyone who required a quick and easy ferry over to New Brunswick.

  • "Wonderful!"

    We really enjoyed our sailing from PEI to NS. We were lucky to have booked the 1pm sailing which had live music. This was great fun. The ship was clean and comfortable and the vegetarian pasties were delicious.
