Ferries are filling fast Monday morning after high winds cancelled almost all of Sunday’s sailings.
To compensate, BC Ferries added additional sailings Monday morning to the route between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay. The morning saw a three-sailing wait for cars headed to Swartz Bay from Tsawwassen and a one-sailing wait for cars leaving Greater Victoria. The 8 a.m. sailing to Tsawwassen from Swartz Bay left at 100 per cent capacity and subsequent sailings have been more than 70 per cent full.
Ferries sailing out of Tsawwassen and into Victoria are even more packed, with the 9, 10, and 11 a.m. sailings into Swartz Bay leaving at capacity.
As of 12:30 p.m., there is a one-sailing wait for passengers sailing either direction.
While 2.5 centimetres of snow fell at the Victoria International Airport Sunday evening, none of Monday’s ferry sailings have been cancelled. BC Ferries says it will continue to post updates.
