|"Off-season" can be "On-season" to Others!
There is now no ferry service between New England and Nova Scotia and the
former ferries only ran during the six month "off-season" between October
and May, This service gap is planned to be filled by the year-round
Boston-Halifax ferry project. Most often, the winter centered period is
subject to more stormy weather than summer time, which could caused
missed trips. The ship would in such cases layover in either port for
suitable weather. Seaworthiness is also required by the Coast Guard and
other agencies. A close example of nearby existing year-round service is
the sea connection between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland that is provided
by Marine Atlantic (see above link).
