THE CAT HIGH SPEED FERRY 

Bay Ferries Limited announces that the Yarmouth to Maine high-speed ferry service will not operate during the 2020 season.

This decision was made after close consultation with the Province of Nova Scotia and takes into consideration the uncertainty as to the eventual removal of border and public health travel restrictions during 2020.

Mark MacDonald, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Bay Ferries Limited, stated:

This is a difficult, but also now an obvious, decision. International non-essential travel worldwide has essentially come to a standstill. It is not clear when US operations would be permitted to occur, what opportunity would exist for proper marketing of the service, and what short term customer demand would be. In the circumstances, we are focused on reduction of cost.

Mr. MacDonald also stated: “We wish to thank our employees, our ship’s crew, our valued partners in the Town of Bar Harbor, the Town of Yarmouth, USCBP, and CBSA who have worked closely with us to be ready for this season. We are grateful for everyone’s continued support and look forward to successful operations in 2021 and the future.

The CAT will remain at her off season home in Charleston, South Carolina and will re-enter ferry service next spring.


The fastest way to get from Maine to Nova Scotia, the high-speed CAT ferry takes you between Bar Harbor and Yarmouth in just 3.5 hours. With plenty of onboard amenities and knowledgeable staff and crew, the journey is more than just fast, it’s a way to discover the Atlantic en route.
