Hi VT Jen, I am not sure about the Blue Nose I have heard nothing about that ferry in a very long time. Thomas there is the CAT ferry from Bar Harbor to Yarmouth. Driving all the way is a lovely ride too. My cousins husband comes from River John NS. He lives here in NH. It is a 13 hour drive from here for him. Taking the ferry actually makes a longer trip for him. it is 2 hours to ferry in Portland then 10 hours on the ferry . After it docks at Yarmouth then it is still an 8 hour drive to River John.
