In an update posted yesterday 15 July 2019 on its website Bay Ferries Ltd said:
"Due to continued construction and related approval processes at the Bar Harbor ferry terminal, it is anticipated that the earliest date on which any service could commence is in the late summer range. Efforts are being made to accelerate the start date; but, in the meantime, all customers holding bookings on the season will be offered full refunds on their reservations and no new reservations will be accepted until there is more definitive timing. Passengers will be offered alternate passage, where available, between Saint John and Digby on MV Fundy Rose. The company will communicate directly with its customers on these changes.
"Bay Ferries Limited deeply regrets any inconvenience caused to our customers and impacts on our partners and the hospitality industry.
"We will continue to make every effort to support the Southwest Nova tourism industry, and Nova Scotia tourism industry, in any way possible."
As of today 16 July, Yarmouth-area DMO Yarmouth & Acadian Shores is continuing to promote The Cat. They need to ASAP come up with a credible Plan B to get people visiting Maine to continue on to NS.
