Would I feel confident traveling on one of your ferries?
Part of the joy of visiting a coastal province is the shoreline. If travel by water is part of your vacation plans, there are many systems and services in place to ensure that your travel is comfortable and safe. Marine Atlantic has produced the brochure, Guide for Passengers with Disabilities, which can be requested on their website, or by calling 1-800-341-7981 (TTY, 1-877-820-9252).
The majority of Atlantic ferries are equipped with visual alarms, accessible cafeterias and wheelchair accessible washrooms, along with many other features. Service animals are welcome free of charge, and are permitted to remain with you as long as they are properly harnessed (written proof of training may be required). Northumberland Ferries Ltd. operates two ferries during the peak season (HOLIDAY ISLAND & CONFEDERATION) and one ferry during the ‘shoulder seasons’ that run between Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Information on this ferry service is available on the NFL website or by calling (902)-566-3838 (TTY, 902-626-2561).
