Worlds Apart, Just a Crossing Away

Over the last few months, many of us have spent time dreaming of being able to travel again on a journey within Atlantic Canada. We’re wishing for those moments of breathing in the salty ocean air while we see the stunning rocky coastlines of both Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia as we travel between the two provinces on the ferry. We’re looking forward to sharing a hug and a laugh as we reconnect with the people and places we love. Now we can return to the beautiful places we love, worlds apart, just a crossing away.

Marine Atlantic is here, ready to welcome you back, when you are ready to travel again. So keep dreaming, book your passage, and travel with peace of mind.

Today, Dream

Stay curious and dream of your next journey to Newfoundland and Labrador. From the rugged cliffs, to magnificent mountains and icebergs, outdoor adventures with breathtaking scenery await at every turn.

Or plan a visit to Nova Scotia, and experience the legendary maritime culture and hospitality this province is known for. Relax and play on the beaches of Canada’s Ocean Playground in the afternoon, then head to a stellar restaurant and fill up on fresh and local seafood.

Turn your dreams of adventure into reality and plan an Atlantic Canada getaway. Here are a couple of ideas to get you started on making a plan to two outstanding destinations, worlds apart, just a crossing away:

  • Learn about all the things to do in Newfoundland and Labrador. From bird watching to spotting whales and icebergs out on the water, there’s an endless list of memorable activities in this beautiful province.
  • Explore the great outdoors on foot and discover the best hiking destinations in Newfoundland and Labrador.
  • We’ve teamed up with Parks Canada to make your next journey even more exciting with unrestricted access to history and nature. Discover truly exceptional places, like fascinating fjords and lakes of Gros Morne National Park or the only authenticated Norse site in North America at L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site. 
  • Head out on an outdoor adventure in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, play a round or two of golf on world-class courses, and head to the mainland and explore more of Nova Scotia.
