After scrapping all of their service between the lower mainland and Vancouver Island, as well as on some smaller routes, due to Wednesday's wind storm and other adverse weather conditions, B.C. Ferries has also cancelled some morning sailings out of Metro Vancouver Thursday morning.

Two trips each out of Horseshoe Bay on the mainland and Departure Bay on the island have been cut today:

Queen of Cowichan

  • 6:15 a.m. departing Departure Bay
  • 8:25 a.m. departing Horseshoe Bay

Queen of Coquitlam

  • 6:15 a.m. departing Horseshoe Bay
  • 8:25 a.m. departing Departure Bay

Additionally, the Salish Eagle, connecting Comox and Powell River, has taken some morning sailings offline Thursday as well: 6:15 a.m. departing Comox (Little River) and 8:05 a.m. departing Powell River (Westview)

"The safety of our passengers and crew is of primary importance to us. 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," says B.C. Ferries in their service advisory.

Anyone planning to travel Thursday with B.C. Ferries is reminded to check their website frequently to be aware of service issues on routes.
