BC Ferries reinstates weekend sailings from May 12 to October 7, also holiday weekends year-round.

In response of the FAC’s bid for reinstatement of the early afternoon weekend sailings at 1.50pm from Gabriola and 2.25pm from Nanaimo,  BC Ferries this week confirmed that these sailings will now operate over a longer period each summer, and at busier holiday weekends throughout the year.

These sailings will now operate 7 days a week between May 12 and October 7, and on the following holiday weekends in 2018:

  • Saturday February 10 / Sunday February 11 (BC Family Day Weekend)
  • Saturdays March 17, 24 / Sundays March 18, 25 (Schools Spring Break)
  • Saturday March 31 / Sunday April 1 (Easter weekend)
  • Victoria Day, Canada Day, BC Day, Labour Day and Thanksgiving
  • Saturday November 10 / Sunday November 11 (Remembrance Day)
  • Saturday December 21 / Sunday December 22 (pre Christmas)
