  • "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.

  • "Crossing the Strait . . . ."

    From booking on-line, checking in, boarding the Confederation Ferry at Wood Islands and disembarking at Caribou we found the Bay Ferries Team very efficient. A smooth operation by a well organised crew . . . Thank you for a safe trip.
