Extra weekend sailings start on July 1

The extra early afternoon sailings on Saturdays and Sundays start up again this Saturday (July 1) and run each Saturday and Sunday through until September 3.

The extra ferry leaves Gabriola at 1.50pm on Saturdays and Sundays, returning from Nanaimo at 2.25pm (matching the weekday schedule).

This is the second year of a two-year pilot agreed by BC Ferries following a request from the Ferry Advisory Committee.  Results from 2016 demonstrated that the reinstatement of these sailings generated extra traffic at weekends and the FAC is hopeful that the pilot project will be made permanent each summer after 2017.
