UPDATED 5 p.m. Thursday: Vehicle space on this route is fully booked for the remainder of the day. There may be some space still available for foot passengers
Those trying to get off Vancouver Island Thursday evening on the Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen ferry route have a two-sailing wait ahead, according to the current conditions noted on BC Ferries’ website.
Currently, the 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. ferries are full, and the 9 p.m. is almost at capacity.
BC Ferries predicted the conditions in their traffic forecast for Remembrance Day weekend, labelling these times “very busy.”
The website also said, “While the information presented on our Current Conditions pages reflects vehicle traffic, it is also a good indicator of overall passenger loads. Customers without vehicles are encouraged to consider this information as they plan their travels with BC Ferries.”
