You just made my day.  The Cabot Trail will be in my near future now.

Thanks!

Looks like about the same travel time vs driving.  It's nice for making a loop though.

Yeah. I was looking at that. 12 hours vs. overnight.  ???
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

True, but if I booked my overnight on the ferry, I'll be making progress while sleeping!  I'd be thinking of taking the ferry over and ride back via north.

Woo hoo! Back in the day I took the Bar Harbor to Yarmouth ferry (also now defunct; would love it if this ferry is profitable enough to encourage resumption of the other route) many times. Sure, you can drive the distance in about the same time, but the ferry creates many options for you, especially if you are doing the Maritimes as part of a much longer trip. Gonna have to think about becoming a customer now.

Don't y'all have shipbuilding facilities up there?
