BC Ferries travellers trying to get from Vancouver to Victoria may experience delays Thursday with two sailings cancelled due to mechanical issues.
The ferry service says the 11 a.m. leaving Tsawwassen and the 1 p.m. leaving Swartz Bay were cancelled because the vessel was experiencing high temperature alarms.
