Motorists hoping to catch a ferry from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen can expect at least a one-sailing wait at 3 p.m. on Sunday. Traffic is heavy on the ferries, and other sailings are filling up fast.

As of 2:45 p.m. Sunday, the 3 p.m. sailing from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen was 100 per cent full, and sail waits were advised for cars and oversize vehicles.

The 4 and 5 p.m. ferries were 64 per cent and 62 per cent full respectively, as of 2:45 p.m. There are two more sailings after that, at 7 and 9 p.m.

Services to Salt Spring Island and the Southern Gulf Islands were not affected and do not have sail waits.
