Travel to Canada by boat

Ferries provide links from the USA to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick on the Atlantic coast and to Victoria and Vancouver on the Pacific coast. Ferries operate regularly and offer an often quicker way of crossing the border, especially from Nova Scotia.

Two ferry routes link Yarmouth, Nova Scotia to Portland and Bar Harbor in Maine, USA. A ferry from Deer Island, New Brunswick runs to Eastport, Maine, USA.

Cruise ships stop at Victoria and Vancouver in British Columbia. Other cruise lines travel up the St Lawrence River into Quebec City and Montreal. Other destinations along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts are opening up to cruise ships. Travel agents usually provide the most up to date information on cruise lines, routes and prices.

Freighter ships sometimes carry passengers, some of which stop in Canada. Normally 6 to 12 passengers are accommodated. This choice of travel can often be more expensive than any alternative.
