Weather condition conditions have actually required B.C. Ferries to cancel a variety of cruisings throughout the Strait of Georgia.
The ferry corporation encouraged in a social networks post that the Queen of Cowichan’s arranged 6: 35 p.m. cruising from Departure Bay has been cancelled due to high winds. Previous service notices had encouraged that the 10: 40 a.m. and 3: 20 p.m. cruisings from Departure Bay and the 1 p.m. cruising from Horseshoe Bay were cancelled for the very same reason.
A number of cruisings in between Tsawwassen and Victoria’s Swartz Bay were aslo cancelled Friday. 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. cruisings from Tsawwassen are cancelled, as are 11 a.m., noon, 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. cruisings from Swartz Bay.

” The safety of our travelers and team is of main significance to us. We don’t take the decision to cancel cruisings lightly, as we understand customers depend on us to get to their destinations. We will resume service as soon as it is safe to do so,” the service notification reads. “We appreciate your patience and excuse any trouble experienced as a result of this cancellation.”
