What a wonderful way to get to and from Nova Scotia, without the 4 to 5 hour drive. The Bay of Fundy was so calm, the sun was shining, truly an amazing experience.

This was a great ferry ride from Saint John to Digby while on our vacation to the Maritimes. Great services, great viewing areas and a shortened time to Nova Scotia from New Brunswick.
