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.
