Bay Ferries extending the season for the Cat out of Yarmouth

The Cat ferry from Yarmouth to Portland will have an extended season this summer.

Bay Ferries say the ferry will begin sailing June 1st and the season will be extended into mid-October…two weeks earlier and two weeks later than last season. It’s hoped that will bring more passengers at the end of the season. However, Bay Ferries president Mark MacDonald wouldn’t make passenger predictions in an appearance before a legislature committee. They carried over 35,000 passengers last season…well short of their goal.
