Four regional airports (in Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John and Bathurst) make it convenient for you to arrive in the jet-setting style to which you’re accustomed. For International Flights - just a 5 ½ hour direct flight to Halifax, Nova Scotia from London with commuter flights to New Brunswick in 30 minutes or a short 3 hour drive. Also, direct flights to Montreal with connector flights and train options to New Brunswick.


Bus & Coach

Travel by coach and relax in a comfortable, air-conditioned bus while a professional takes care of the driving. Check out Maritime Bus for more information.



There’s nothing quite like the sound of a train whistle. Board the VIA Rail in Montreal in the evening, and be in Campbellton, Bathurst, Miramichi or Moncton before noon the next day.



Drop Anchor in the Bay of Fundy – When you arrive in the cruise port of Saint John your true Maritime experience begins. Cruise Saint John is welcoming guests every day and they love it! Shore excursions can either be arranged through your cruise line or when you arrive. The tour guides at Aquila Tours and Ambassatours are standing by with a warm greeting and shore excursions-made-simple for you.
