Extra ferry sailings added for summer

BC Ferries announced last week that they are adding extra sailings on major routes this summer to help smooth the way for holiday travellers and tourists.

The Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay route, which BC Ferries identifies as the busiest in the fleet, will be served by four vessels this summer, providing up to 32 sailings per day. The Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay route will be served by three ferries bringing up to 22 sailings per day. On the Tsawwassen to Duke Point route there will be two vessels offering

16 sailings per day, seven days per week.

There’s also some good news for people travelling with vehicles longer than 20 feet. The regular $6.35 per additional foot charge is being reduced to $2 per additional foot until Sept.

13 on the Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen-Duke Point routes, if you travel on Wednesday and Saturday after 4 p.m. or Sunday before 9 a.m. Check www.bcferries.com for complete scheduling and fare information.
