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.
