Wood Islands ferry port in Prince Edward Island connects you with Caribou in Nova Scotia with a choice of up to 9 ferry crossings per day. The duration of the Wood Islands to Caribou crossing is from 1 hour 15 minutes and the crossing is operated by Northumberland Ferries.
Wood Islands is a small port on the island of Prince Edward, resting on the southwest coast of the island. The only ferry route is to Caribou on the east coast of Nova Scotia, proving to be the gateway to the mainland of Canada.
Looking out across the endless blue horizon, where the deep blue water meets the clear blue skies, emanating a steady heat that reverberates around the islands, you will feel completely at one with the great outdoors. The scenery is begging to be explored, either if you prefer to strap on your hiking boots and scale the terrain or sit with a fishing rod as you admire the undulating landscape. The entire island is decorated in challenging walking trails and perfect spots to catch a spectacular view of the stunning surroundings, though for the apex of aesthetics, head to Northumberland Provincial Park for pictures that will become the envy of your friends and family.
The authentic hillside hosting verdant forestry may hog the attention, but some artificial landmarks also exist; the lighthouse is an imposing edifice that towers above the stretch of water, acting as a constant reference point should you lose your bearings. After embarking on a brisk walk, sample some of the latest cuisine at one of the fine restaurants
The natural scenery and spectacular views are perfect for traversing on foot, or on two wheels, which are the popular options.
