if you're coming to PEI send me an MP. I am lliving there. Though I'll be in Montreal til end of july may be more.
On PEI there is a provincial park on the beach with beautifull sunset on water. It's on the west part of the island. Close to the lighthouse. BTW if you come around the august 10 they start to fish lobster and you can buy them from the fisherman 3 minutes by walk from the camp.
In Nova Scotia we love the south shore.

Yeah - this is the first year for Portland. The "Blue Nose" ferry use to run from Portland. Much slower - but a lot more time to enjoy the trip - and you could go out on the deck. Not possible with the Cat at 55 mph - except for the aft deck where you can watch the twin rooster tails from the jet propulsion pumps! It was also worthwhile booking a cabin on the Bluenose - but I don't think cabins are available on the Cat. This is a "new" Cat from the one we took several years back.

I rode my bike to Nova Scotia & PEI from the OH/IND border when I was in college. Lots of hills & narrow roads the way we went. Even now, 20 yrs later, I'd rather ride those particular roads than pull a trailer.

Sorry, not much help...

Cat Ferry

Here are the current Cat Ferry prices for TV and trailer. Most of us would be looking at $400 to $500 one way from Bar Harbor. There are a few discounts available for round trip travel, early or online booking, etc.

We would be in the over $500.00 each way group with our 25' Excella and Ford 150. We come in at about 48 feet when we are towing "The Tube".

There is an NEU Caravan being planned for 2008 to Nova Scotia and PEI. Current thinking is it will be two weeks in length and will include the 2008 Region 1 Rally (in PEI). Should be a blast! I have taking my Airstream on the CAT on my life list of adventures, maybe I can figure a way to do this next year......

Yes, I'm guessing it cost so much because of the length of his truck and trailer combo. I bet he comes at 53 feet when towing the Gargoo.
