With the long weekend upon us, those looking to use BC Ferries as part of their travels today are being advised to plan ahead and double-check their schedules.

In a service notice, the company said it has cancelled a number of sailings on the Tsawwassen – Swartz Bay route.

BC Ferries says the cancellations are the result of “an incident involving one of the ship’s rescue boats.”

The affected sailings include:

  • 7 am departure from Swartz Bay terminal
  • 9 am departure from Tsawwassen terminal
  • 11 am departure from Swartz Bay terminal
  • 1 pm departure from Tsawwassen terminal

In light of the cancellations, the company said it will be refunding premiums for customers who reserved a spot on any of these sailings. The vessel is expected to be back in service in time for the 3 pm sailing.

Daily Hive has reached out to BC Ferries for further information on the incident.
