Ferry planning proved rocky for travellers between Mill Bay and Brentwood Bay on Wednesday (April 3).

BC Ferries first alerted travellers shortly after 7 a.m. that the first ferries would not sail as they couldn’t secure the federally required number of crew members.

Service for the day was subsequently cancelled in an update shortly before 8:30 due to “unanticipated crew absences.”

By 10 a.m. the corporation announced it could resume the routes starting at 11 a.m. and running through the day to the final ferries – the 5:55 out of Brentwood Bay and the 6:30 from Mill Bay.
