Travellers bound for Anacortes this week will have to find another way.
On Wednesday, Washington State Ferries (WSF) announced that all sailings for the Sidney-Anacortes route would be cancelled until Wed. Aug. 29 so the ship could replace a broken ferry on another route. The M/V Chelan, which operates on the WSF’s only international route, will replace the M/V Hyak, which serves the San Juan Islands.
Due to urgent motor repairs on #Hyak (one of the domestic #SanJuanIslands vessels), all international #SidneyBC sailings from tomorrow 8/23 thru 8/29 are cancelled so #Chelan can be reassigned to the domestic route.

“We apologize for the inconvenience this cancellation causes and will provide updates on the restoration of international service as they become available,” read a statement from WSF.
