Discovery Coast Service Starts This Week

 Discover Northern Vancouver Island 
and Cariboo - Chilcotin
BC Ferries’ Discovery Coast Passage connecting Port Hardy and Bella Coola, with several stops in between, starts next week. This summer only route runs from June 15 – September 13, 2010.

“The Discovery Coast Passage is a perfect opportunity for a circle tour through northern Vancouver Island and the Cariboo – Chilcotin region,” said Janet Carson, BC Ferries’ Vice President of Marketing and Travel Services. “We’ve created an exciting nine-day self-drive vacation package to take full advantage of all the adventures that this region has to offer.”

The journey begins in Vancouver and takes travellers to the picturesque communities of Campbell River and Port Hardy. From the northern tip of Vancouver Island sail on the Queen of Chilliwack up the rugged coastline and into the jade-green fjords to Bella Coola where guests can enjoy a grizzly bear or eco-raft tour. Then it’s through the back country on to Williams Lake and finally indulge in a night at Whistler. Travellers can take the trip in either direction.

The relaxing voyage aboard the Queen of Chilliwack often entertains travellers with sightings of bald eagles, porpoises and dolphins. Customers are able to “wet launch” their kayaks right from the deck of the ship for a true west coast wilderness escape.

For passengers planning their own itinerary, the Discovery Coast Passage route provides three round trips per week between Port Hardy and Bella Coola with stops at the coastal villages of comfortable sleeper seats, coin-operated showers and barbecues hosted by the crew on the outer deck of the ship.
