BC Ferries’ summer schedule started June 24 and will run through Sept. 7, with extra sailings on the major routes as well as additional service on some of the minor routes to ensure smooth sailing for summer holiday travellers. Seasonal adjustments to sailing times will also be in effect on many routes.

The Discovery Coast Connector will provide extra service to the mid-coast during the summer months.

The MV Northern Adventure will provide five round trips per week between Prince Rupert and Haida Gwaii from July 1 through Labour Day. BC Ferries reminds summer travellers with vehicles longer than 20 feet, the ‘Size up the Savings’ promotion is in effect on select sailings from now until Sept. 13.

Customers will pay only $2 per foot additional length charge (regularly $6.35) on the Tsawwassen – Swartz Bay and the Tsawwassen – Duke Point routes.

The promotion applies to Wednesday and Saturday sailings starting at 4 p.m. and Sunday sailings before 9 a.m. for both routes, departing from either terminal.
