You don’t get all the posh fixtures and seats like you do on the BC ferries but for the price and the trip is over 90 minutes a bargain.  Unfortunately the weather was horrid,  foggy and wet and nothing to see out side…..

Because of the long line I up I decided to make a reservation for the return trip tomorrow afternoon an extra 10 dollars but worth it as I now do have a little bit of a schedule…..I have booked a theatre reservation for Tuesday evening and on Wednesday booked a 2 hour bout tour and Thursday I have a 4.30pm ferry reservation for the return trip to Nova Scotia…this will only be a 6 hour ferry ride.

Just after 5pm arrived yet again in the Province of

So what is the equivalent cost in BC? I'm guessing it's closer to $100.
