P.E.I.-N.S. ferry service restarts five days after the MV Holiday Island fire

PEI

Key takeaways: 

  • For now, MV Confederation will complete 4 round trips every day as a lone ship on the way.
  • ‘There are some opportunities out there they are looking at … it’s better than I thought it might be, but it’s never right enough till the boat is driving the cars on the water, MacAulay says.

Ferry junctions between P.E.I. and Nova Scotia restarted Wednesday, nearly a week after an engine room blaze on MV Holiday Island set a break to all ferry services to and from the Island.

MV Confederation left the harbor at Wood Islands, P.E.I., at 7 a.m. AT with approximately 44 cars on board — around average for the first trip on a Wednesday morning, according to operator Northumberland Ferries Ltd. It had 14 trucks, six motorcycles, four campers, and roughly 20 cars.
