B.C. Ferries is offering 158 additional sailings between Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island to meet anticipated demand over the holiday season.

Between Dec. 18.and Jan. 4, 112 sailings will be added between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay, and 42 additional sailings between Horseshoe Bay and Departure Bay are scheduled. Four sailings have been added between Duke Point and Tsawwassen.

From Dec. 21 to 29, the schedules have been expanded on the Horseshoe Bay – Departure Bay, Horseshoe Bay – Langdale and Horseshoe Bay – Bowen Island routes to allow more in-dock time in order to maintain on-time performance during this peak period.

Dec. 26, 27, and 28 are expected to be the busiest days for ferry travel over the holiday season, particularly mid-day on Dec. 27. As heavy demand is expected on these three days, B.C. Ferries recommends reservations for customers planning to travel on a specific sailing.

B.C. Ferries reminds passengers that on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, sailing schedules are reduced on some routes due to historically low demand.
