In reality, Prince Edward Island (PEI) is located on the east coast of Canada, in the region fondly referred to as ‘the Maritimes’. It’s nestled in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, an easy 15-minute bridge crossing or 75-minute ferry ride from its fellow Maritime provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Once you’ve arrived on PEI, make your way to the spectacular north shore to explore Cavendish and let your spirit run free.
Pssst…notice how we only have a Getting Here section and not a ‘Leaving’ section? That’s because once you’re here, there’s a very good chance you’ll never want to leave. Plus, if you *must* leave, it’s pretty easy to follow the Getting Here directions in reverse.

Summertime crossings feature unforgettable Seaside Experiences—a showcase of the finest music, entertainment, food, wine, and beer samplings the region has to offer. All complimentary of Northumberland Ferries and its partners, you’ll get your first taste of PEI hospitality before you even arrive on our shores!
The PEI Ferry operates from May to December, and sails up to 9 times a day between Caribou, Nova Scotia and Wood Islands, PEI. The drive from the ferry terminal to Cavendish is 100 kilometres (60 miles).
