BC Ferries has cancelled all sailings between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland for the rest of the day Friday due to high winds and sea state.
The cancellations began with the Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay route 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.”
