Nova Scotia Ferries and Sea Travel

Nova Scotia by sea makes perfect sense. With loads of options from major cruise lines to ferries, it can be quick and convenient, and with the thrill of an ocean voyage, getting here really is half the fun.

Cruise to Nova Scotia

As part of the Canada/New England cruise corridor, more than 20 major cruise lines visit Nova Scotia ports of call each year. From the marquee ports of Halifax and Sydney, to the smaller ports of call, a variety of shore excursions will provide rich cultural experiences to suit every taste. Discover the birthplace of New Scotland - be a soldier for a day, immerse yourself in 1744 France or visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Sailing to Nova Scotia

Our magnificent coastline, dotted with endless inlets, coves, and harbours, stretches over 7,600 kilometres (more than 4,700 miles). The character of the landscape changes dramatically from end to end and is perfect for exploring by sailboat.
