Those travelling on select BC Ferries sailings this summer will have the opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine or a beer during the trip, as part of a new pilot project.

According to a leaked company memo obtained by The Orca, the pilot is targeted to begin sometime this June, and will be applicable on three different vessels that travel between Tswwassen and Swartz Bay.

Those vessels include the Spirit of British Columbia, Spirit of Vancouver Island, and the Coastal Celebration.

There is still a bit of a catch, however. Customers are limited to a two-drink maximum, and only with the purchase of a meal in the Pacific Buffet.

According to the memo, “this pilot project is an initial small-scale implementation that is intended to prove the viability and scalability of providing this to our customers.”

Daily Hive has reached out to BC Ferries for further comment.

This latest update to onboard services follows another one last fall when the company announced it was bringing debit services onboard certain sailings as well.
