All about Portland's International Ferry Terminal.

 

 

The International Marine Terminal, off Commercial Street at India Street (map) in Portland, Maine, is the departure point for many cruises and for the summer daily ferry service to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.

(Casco Bay ferries and cruises depart from the Casco Bay Municipal Ferry Terminal. More...)

Daily summer ferry service between Portland and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, is scheduled for May 15 to November 2, 2014.

The Canadian ferry, operated by Nova Star Cruises departs Portland at 9 pm and arrives in Yarmouth the next morning at 8 am. The return trip from Yarmouth departs at 10 am and arrives in Portland at 7 pm.

This voyage is not simple, basic transportation, but rather a mini-cruise. The vessel, the new 160-meter (525-foot) Nova Star has three restaurants, a cinema, casino, art gallery, spa, and duty-free shops.

Fares range from US$126 for one adult, one-way, off-season, in a recliner seat, to US$696 for two persons, round-trip, in high summer, in recliner seats, port taxes and amenities charges included. Children under 5 years of age travel free.

Cabins cost an additional US$79 to $249, one-way, for up to four passengers (that's the charge per cabin, not per person).

Motor vehicles up to 20 feet (6 meters) in length cost US$139 to $199 one-way; bicycles $16 to $22 one-way.

Make your reservations on the Nova Star Cruises website.
