What To Expect
Saint John, New Brunswick, is known for its vibrant waterfront and the river ferries that connect different parts of the city. These ferries provide both locals and visitors with a convenient and scenic mode of transportation across the Saint John River.
The Reversing Falls Ferries are a popular choice for crossing the river and experiencing the unique tidal phenomenon of the Reversing Falls. These ferries take passengers from the west side of the river, near the Loyalist Plaza in the city center, to the east side, where they can witness the powerful rapids created by the changing tides.
Another ferry service, known as the Westfield Ferry, operates further upriver. This ferry connects Westfield, a picturesque village located approximately 20 kilometers west of Saint John, to the Kingston Peninsula. The Westfield Ferry offers a delightful way to explore the rural landscapes and charming communities along the river.
The river ferries not only serve as transportation links but also provide scenic tours and opportunities to enjoy the picturesque Saint John River. Passengers can soak in the views of the riverbanks, islands, and surrounding natural beauty during the short crossings.
These ferries operate seasonally, typically from spring to fall, and their schedules may vary. It's recommended to check the current operating hours and availability before planning a trip.
Whether it's for practical transportation or a leisurely river excursion, the Saint John river ferries offer a delightful way to experience the city's waterfront and appreciate the natural beauty of the Saint John River. And they are FREE!
