BAR HARBOR, Maine (AP) - Ongoing construction has further pushed back the start date for ferry service between Maine and Nova Scotia.

Bay Ferries, the Canadian ferry company, says the earliest service could begin is later this summer. The service was originally projected to start operating from Bar Harbor in late June.

The Bangor Daily News reports the ferry has either not operated at all or operated between Portland and Nova Scotia for the past 10 years.

The company is offering full refunds and alternate booking for all customers with reservations for the Fundy Rose ferry this season. The service operates between Saint John, New Brunswick and Digby, Nova Scotia.

The company says the Cat ferry will not be accepting new reservations until Bay Ferries has a more permanent start date for service.
