The 11 pm sailing from Prince Rupert to Haida Gwaii has been cancelled, as has the sailing from Skidegate back to Rupert at 11 am on Monday morning.

Since further sailings are also weather dependent, customers are asked to contact BC Ferries at 1-888-BC FERRY (223-3779).

 All reserved customers on the cancelled sailing will be accommodated on the next scheduled sailings which are:

 11:00 PM Monday November 1st from Prince Rupert - Weather dependent
