Just a few months ago we filled you in on the awesomeness that is the new ferry service planned between Maine and Nova Scotia, and now we have a little more information about when things will start cruising across the Atlantic just shy of the Bay of Fundy.

The back and forth between Portland, Maine and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia will all happen thanks to the Nova Star Ferry, beginning on May 15. Now that departures and arrivals are finally on the schedule, travelers can now view the ferry fares.

Officials at Nova Star Cruises have created three seasons of service, as pricing will depend on if youíre traveling during saver season, shoulder season, or summer season. There's still a little bit of saver season left, but after May 21, prices rise along with temperatures. Shoulder season runs between May 22 and June 11 and will return again on September 9, and the summer season does its thing between June 12 and September 8.

Head to their official site to check out the full breakdown of all offerings, since it's an overnight voyage with several different cabins and fares from which to chose. The cheapest ferry trip goes for $79 per adult, but donít forget to add in a cabin or a seat; recliner seats begin at $39 and cabins start at $79. Thankfully even the smallest of the interior cabins can still sleep up to four people, and each has a private bathroom complete with shower.

Once summer hits the fares jump to $139, and the cheapest cabins will set you back $99 per person.

So there you goóitís time to start planning your trip and booking accommodations on both sides of the border. Just donít forget to grab a rental car upon arrival; youíll need it to check out all the nooks and crannies of the Canadian coast.
