Was wondering if you can take a ferry between Portland and Halifax, or even from Maine to and from Nova Scotia?

The option doesn't appear to exist anymore?

There is no ferry service between Portland or Bar Harbor servicing Canada any more.

Hmm...deja vu thread?

Nope, they discontinued it after over a century of rather consistent operation of the route. This happened two summers ago. It went from Portland to Yarmouth - and Bar Harbor as well. Talks are in the mix to create a new route from Portland or Boston to Yarmouth or Halifax. Likeliest choice would be Boston or Portland to Halifax. Both would take much longer than the 3 hour CAT ferry. There are no other ferries which travel between Maine and Nova Scotia. There is one that travels between Maine and New Brunswick - the Eastport-Deer Island ferry. It is seasonal.
