A BC Ferries spokesperson says there is still plenty of room for foot passengers on these sailings, however, the BC Ferries website says there is zero per cent capacity remaining for long-term parking at the Tsawwassen terminal.
According to the BC Ferries website, just after 8 a.m., the company was already selling tickets for the 8:15 p.m. sailing which was 16 per cent full.
The only other remaining sailing for Monday, the 10:15 p.m. departure, was 30 per cent full at the same time.
For ferries leaving Nanaimo, the company is not facing similar capacity issues.
The 10:15 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. departure from Nanaimo are full, but the 12:45 p.m., 3:15 p.m., 8:15 p.m., and 10:45 p.m. still have capacity.
