Relaxing trip, less than two hours each time. A little disorganized. Make sure you get a boarding pass from the terminal upon arrival. Your reservation doesn't get you on board and you could be left off if the boat fills up. Those without reservations might...More

Traveled from Digby to Saint John. Great way to cut time off our trip back to Pennsylvania . Ship felt like a cruise liner. Had a movie playing when we started, which made the time go quickly. Very efficiently run.

This is a very comfortable ferry. They leave on time and they arrive on time. They are very well organized. The trip only takes about 2 hours and eliminates a lot of driving if you are going to Halifax.
