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.

RELATED: BC Ferries not as full as reported due to ability to book consecutive sailings

BC Ferries predicted the conditions in their traffic forecast for Remembrance Day weekend, labelling these times “very busy.”
