Adverse weather results in BC Ferry cancellations

With an intense pacific from set to cross from Haida Gwaii to the North Coast overnight and into Monday, BC Ferries has announced the cancellation of two sailings of the Northern Adventure.

Late Sunday evening the Ferry Corporation announced that the Sunday night departure from Prince Rupert, scheduled for 11 pm had been cancelled, and with that cancellation the return trip from Skidegate to Prince Rupert has been cancelled as well.

The decision to cancel the crossing for Sunday night was based on the latest Environment Canada forecast calling for strong winds set to begin overnight Sunday.

BC Ferries hopes to return to scheduled service on Monday evening with the 11 pm departure for Haida Gwaii

Passengers seeking further information can access the latest details at the BC Ferry website or contact BC Ferries at 1-888-BC Ferry (223-3779).
