Charlottetown to Port Hawkesbury

Hello

We are planning to have a trip in August (2nd to 10th). I wanted to find out which route is better, considering time taken (not money) Bridge or Ferry. Date is August 3rd, so I am assuming the ferry will be quite busy. But we can book in advance (4 cars). We are pressing time so any advise from the locals is excellent. Please include time to wait and boad the ferry as well.

By road through the bridge google maps show approx. 4 hours 15 mins

Thank you

The ferry ride is about 75 minutes. I'm not sure what the ferry recommends/requires for the amount of time you must be there before departure. The ferry will be easier and more scenic, but there is always the potential for delays. Here's the number for the ferry, they could best answer your question:

1-877-762-7245

If speed is your top priority then I'd say probably the bridge.

Just keep in mind the toll charges of the bridge versus the cost of the ferry...I'd lean with the bridge as well...
