B.C. ferry stops to let black bear swim past near Nanaimo

It’s a busy weekend for B.C. Ferries, but one of the vessels took time for a ‘bear pause’ Saturday morning in Nanaimo.

The Queen of Oak Bay briefly stopped in Departure Bay at about 8:30 a.m. to let a bear swim in front of the path of the vessel next to Saysutshun Newcastle Island.

The ferry corporation has additional vessels sailing on the Departure Bay-Horseshoe Bay route during the Victoria Day long weekend.
