Several ferry sailings between Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen have been cancelled Wednesday due to adverse weather conditions, according to BC Ferries.
In a service notice, BC Ferries says the 4 p.m. sailing departing Tsawwassen and the 6 p.m. departing Swartz Bay are both cancelled.
The 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. sailings departing Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay, respectively, were cancelled earlier today.
The company says other sailings on this route should sail as scheduled.
At 10:30 a.m., Environment Canada issued a “Gale Warning” for the Strait of Georgia, south of Nanaimo, which means “gale” force winds of 34 to 47 knots (63 to 87 km/h) are occurring or expected to occur in the local marine area.
BC Ferries says its customer service centre will contact customers with bookings on cancelled sailings to let them know if there’s space on the next available sailing, or if their booking must be cancelled.
“In the case of a cancellation, we will refund fees and/or fares,” the company added. “We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience you may experience as a result of these cancellations.”
