Thanksgiving Weekend Busy Time For BC Ferries


BC Ferries is adding extra sailings for the upcoming Thanksgiving long weekend and advises customers to plan their travels in advance.

Over the long weekend, BC Ferries will operate four vessels between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay. Extra sailings will be added on the Horseshoe Bay – Departure Bay route at peak times as traffic warrants throughout the weekend.

Traditionally, Thanksgiving is a busy weekend for ferry travel, especially for foot passengers. Almost 50 per cent more foot passengers are carried this weekend than on an average fall weekend. Foot passenger overloads may occur, so BC Ferries recommends customers arrive at the terminals at least 30 minutes in advance.

Customers travelling to and from Nanaimo are reminded that sailings between Duke Point and Tsawwassen tend to be less congested than sailings between Horseshoe Bay and Departure Bay at peak times. For full schedule details and reservations, use this Nanaimo Info LINK.
