Ferries adds August sailings
B.C. Ferries is adding more sailings to its busiest routes in August. Starting the B.C. Day long weekend, the corporation will add sailings from Tsawwassen at 8 p.m. and from Swartz Bay at 10 p.m. on Fridays and Sundays. There will also be extra sailings on Saturdays at 4 p.m. from Tsawwassen and at 6 p.m. from Swartz Bay. Extra sailings are also scheduled on the Horseshoe BaytoDeparture Bay route on Tuesdays and Wednesdays as mid-week volumes increase. Customers travelling to and from the midVancouver Island region are reminded to consider sailing between Tsawwassen and Duke Point during busier weekend periods when the Horseshoe Bay-Departure Bay route is at capacity.
B.C. Ferries recommends making a reservation for the Lower Mainland-Vancouver Island, and Horseshoe Bay-Langdale routes, particularly during the Aug. 3-6 long weekend.
