B.C. Ferries crew member’s medical emergency causes cancellations on Nanaimo route

One sailing from West Vancouver and one sailing from Nanaimo cancelled Monday

A B.C. Ferries crew member had a medical emergency this morning which has led to two sailings cancelled on the West Vancouver-Nanaimo route.

The 11:05 a.m. sailing from Horseshoe Bay has been cancelled, as has the 1:25 p.m. from Departure Bay.

“We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience you may experience as a result of this cancellation,” noted a service notice from B.C. Ferries.

According to earlier social media posts from B.C. Ferries, the medical emergency happened on the Queen of Oak Bay on the scheduled 6:25 a.m. sailing and caused a two-hour delay.

The ferry corporation asks that customers with reservations check in at the terminals “in accordance with the scheduled sailing times” to maintain their reserved status.
