Hey Friendly Travellers,

Does anyone know if there is a passenger ferry that goes from either the UK - eastern Canada or from Ireland - eastern Canada? I'm not looking for a cruise ship type idea, just a way to get from A to B that's not flying.

Cheers for any info.

hey there man,
im from nova scotia, east coast of canada, and i dont think that there is a ferry. i know that flights from halifax N.S over to Glasgow U.K are not that expensive , comparatively any way. best luck for a boat across the atlantic would be getting a job on a freighter. hahaha, not much of a choice. good luck anyway bud.

You might try calling some of the freighter companies as they will sometimes take passengers on the cross Atlantic voyage,be aware that it will be a 5 day sail one way..

Cheers for the help guys. 5 day sail doesn't bother me, nor do rough living conditions if that were the case, just wanted a different experience to the norm. Thanks.
