IMPORTANT NOTICE


CAR FERRY OUT OF SERVICE IN 2016

DEER ISLAND, NB - EASTPORT, ME, CAR FERRY


FOOT FERRY OUT OF SERVICE IN 2016

LUBEC – EASTPORT FOOT FERRY

2015 July 27 — The foot ferry has been taken out of service, but may be replaced by a new service in the future.


Introduction


Continuing the area's maritime tradition, the Quoddy Loop's center is connected by a series of car ferries (all Canadian operations) and one foot ferry (a US operation). These vessels transport travellers and vehicles among the five principal islands (Campobello Island, Deer Island, Grand Manan, White Head Island, and Eastport (Moose Island)) and the mainland of New Brunswick, plus between Lubec, Maine and Eastport (Moose Island). Moose Island and Campobello Island are both connected to the Maine mainland--Moose Island by tidal dike causeways, and Campobello Island by the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial Bridge ("international bridge") to Lubec.

While Campobello Island and Eastport are now connected to the mainland of Maine by bridge or causeways, they maintain their link to their sister islands in the summer months. Doing so provides easier connections with friends, family, and neighbors, facilitates commerce, and provides a fun, refreshing, and relaxing experience on the water.

As a bonus, ferry travel in the Quoddy Loop frequently results in sighting seabirds, porpois and dolphins, seals, and an occasional whale!

Important Time Information

The Canadian flagCanadian-run ferries operate on Atlantic Time (AT), which is one hour ahead of US flagEastern Time (ET). (NOTE: 1:00 pm AT = Noon ET). Both Canadian flagNew Brunswick and US flagMaine observe Daylight Saving Time. When planning your crossing be sure to calculate the time correctly; otherwise, you may miss the last ferry of the day.

The US-run foot ferry between US flagLubec, Maine, and US flagEastport, Maine, operates on Eastern Time (ET).

Canadian flagDeer Island ferries generally leave precisely at the designated departure time. It is a rapid process, and departure is swift; therefore...

On Canadian flagGrand Manan, during busy periods, you may need to park in line a day ahead of departure (and move up in line with each departure--ask locally about departure conditions), to ensure passage. The only reservations allowed are one day in advance, and only on trips departing from Grand Manan (not from Blacks Harbour). To make reservations, call 506-662-3724 and select the "advance ticket" menu.
