The Province of NS announced yesterday that the Nova Star ferry will be fully operational in 2015.
This could be a great way for American ornithologists to travel to the July meeting in Wolfville.

The crossing takes 11 hours, departing Portland in the evening (8 pm EDT) and arriving in Yarmouth at 8 am (ADT; one hour time difference vs. EDT). It's a good idea to pay extra for a cabin ... although staying up all night in the lounge is an option, as are the reservable recliner chairs. 


The return trip departs Yarmouth at 9:30 am (ADT) and arrives in Portland at 7 pm (EDT). The day crossing offers good whale- and seabird-watching.
