Ferry service between Wood Islands, P.E.I., and Caribou, N.S., is back to two vessels for the summer season.

The MV Saaremaa 1 began making crossings last week while the MV Confederation underwent four days of maintenance.

The Saaremaa is in use while Northumberland Ferries Ltd. waits for the newly purchased MV Fanafjord to arrive, which is expected to be sometime this year. 

The service is now scheduled for eight crossings each way until Oct. 14. The first crossing is at 7 a.m. and the final crossing at 6:30 p.m.

The 75-minute sailing costs $86 for a regular passenger vehicle. Motorists only pay when leaving P.E.I.
