Cruising across the Bay of Fundy


I'm Pisces so that may explain why I'm always keen to get near, in and on the water!

This week I had the perfect chance to be on the water: we hosted some travel writers aboard the Fundy Ferry that traverses the mouth of the Bay of Fundy from Saint John, New Brunswick, to Digby, Nova Scotia. The trip is only 3 hours and enables folks to make a loop around the Bay in both provinces without backtracking.

I love this ship, the Princess of Acadia...it's one of those nice solid, clean & bright ferries with plenty of viewing decks fore and aft (as well as Starbucks coffee & internet on board). Here's a view off the bow as we were about to dock in Digby. I spent 6 hours aboard this week, going from Digby to Saint John and back.

The other image is Rose from the New Brunswick Museum doing their on-board interpretive program during the daily cruises: the theme is Bay of Fundy, of course!

the ferry is great - but the price is ridiculous - absolutely ridiculous - you should be able to go across on foot for $20.00 - many, many,many would take advantage of it if the price was lowere - you can go across the St. Lawrence for $60.00 car and driver - It just makes me furious each time I take the ferry that it costs so much - lots of ''staff'' sitting around - get rid of them - bring down the price and people will use it

It looks wonderful. I love boats and water also. All the names included in the tour resonate with me from my childhood. I will be making them a reality again when I move back to NS after I retire next year. Can't wait. Love your cheery blog!
