You can add another vacay goal to your list because the CAT ferry operator Bay Ferries, Limited has been running this 2022 summer for the first time in four years. This is the international high-speed ferry between Maine and Nova Scotia.

The ferry kept it's promise to return after its contract with the City of Portland, Maine, ended according to NECN and thank goodness.

The CAT isn't in Portland though like it used to be, rather it resumed its operations between Bar Harbor and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and just runs May through mid-October.

How exciting for us to have this travel again with our beautiful Canadian neighbors and enjoy the 3 1/2 hour ride once again through international waters for a getaway.

It's actually been more than a decade since the Bar Harbor to Yarmouth route existed, according to NECN, so this adds to the excitement of the CAT's return, for sure.  I'm sure not having the route from Portland is disappointing for some but at least it's back.

For us New Englanders and really all vacationers from around the world, the return to the Bar Harbor location adds additional excitement to our Maine vacations.  The Acadia National Forest, shopping the quaint town of Bar Harbor, or relaxing on the beaches on Mount Desert Island are all right there, and now we can add a getaway on the CAT to Nova Scotia for some exploring.
