The CAT Ferry Is Back and Faster Than Ever

The CAT is back!

The high-speed CAT car ferry service is now sailing for the summer. At 3.5 hours, it’s the fast and entertaining way to travel between Bar Harbor, Maine, and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

Spend less time driving and more time taking in the amazing sights of the Gulf of Maine, Canadian Maritimes and the Northeastern United States from the decks and venues of The CAT.

Onboard, get a taste of the East Coast with live entertainment through our Music on the Gulf program. Prefer indoor views? Search for the perfect souvenir at the Scotia Market Gift Shop. More of a foodie? We have three unique dining venues to savor. Grab a cup of joe and a variety of snacks to go at our Sip at Sea Café, enjoy the scenery with breakfast, lunch or dinner at Scotia Market, and dive into regional surf and turf at Forchu Lounge with a selection of local wines and beers, paired with fresh seafood and locally sourced ingredients.

Think life can’t always be fun and games? Of course, it can! With daily film screenings in our movie area and onboard tours, The CAT is the easy – and fast – way to navigate a road trip for all ages that doesn’t include the words: “Are we there yet?”
