Big news for approximately one million residents and tourists who ride the province’s seven intra-provincial ferries. Nova Scotia Premier, Iain Rankin announced this morning that the province is permanently removing the fees motorists pay to ride the provincial ferries. Fees normally range from $7 to $10.
Ferry fees were temporarily suspended for all provincial ferries in March 2020 at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our seven ferry services are an integral part of the provincial transportation network and pick up where the highway leaves off,” said Premier Rankin.
“The permanent elimination of ferry fees will reduce the financial burden on local residents and visitors.”
Ferries that have crossing fees eliminated are located at:
- LaHave, Lunenburg County
- Country Harbour, Guysborough County
- Little Narrows, Victoria County
- Englishtown, Victoria County
- Tancook Islands, Lunenburg County
- Petit Passage, Digby County
- Grand Passage, Digby County
