    A very impressive experience overall.
    • Very pleasant ride, clean and comfortable environment, excellent loading and unloading, admirable speed !!, a very impressive experience overall. The only things on our mind was the cost, high for seniors and better quality of personnel serving customers. And somewhat confusing reservations on the U.K.web and costing in EUROS and US dollars only.

    Great crossing
    • Having toured Nova Scotia in a hired car for a week this was a great crossing to the USA. It was very comfortable and relaxing in a fantastic boat.
