Logo   Ferry: Bar Harbor—Nova Scotia
The car ferry from Bar Harbor ME to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, has been discontinued, but there are other ways to go from Maine to Canada.




The Ferry is No Longer Running...

It was really great when you could drive (or walk) onto a sleek ferryboat in Bar Harbor, glide out of Frenchman Bay and across the Gulf of Maine, across the mouth of the Bay of Fundy, and find yourself in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.

It was a fine way of having a Two-Nation Vacation.

Although there is no longer any international ferry service from Bar Harbor, you can still have an excellent Two-Nation Vacation in a different way.
