BC Ferries warns of delays as Spirit of Vancouver Island remains out of service


One of the workhorses in the BC Ferries fleet will remain out of service into next week and that means cancellations on the busy Swartz Bay-Tswwassen route. 

The Spirit of Vancouver Island has a hydraulic issue with a pitch propeller.

BC Ferries says the 167m vessel will dry dock on March 31 for approximately one week for repairs.

That means 11 of the 57 sailings scheduled for this Thursday, Friday and Sunday are cancelled.

BC Ferries warns that Sunday may be particularly busy and ask that people consider to travelling earlier in the day.
