Adverse weather causes cancellations across several BC Ferries routes

BC Ferries has cancelled all sailings between Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen Friday due to high winds and sea state.

The cancellations began early Friday morning with the 7 a.m., 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. By mid-morning, BC Ferries had cancelled the reminder of the sailings for the day.

“The safety of our passenger sand crew is of primary importance to us,” BC Ferries says in a service notice. “We don’t take the decision to cancel sailings lightly, as we know customers rely on us to get to their destinations. We will resume service as soon as it is safe to do so.”

Several other BC Ferries routes are also cancelled Friday including the 3:20 p.m. from Departure Bay, 5:30 p.m., 7:50 p.m. and 10:10 p.m. from Horseshoe Bay and the 6:40 p.m. and 8:55 p.m. from Langdale. All remaining sailings between Duke Point and Tsawwassen have also been cancelled.
