Vancouver (Tsawwassen) – Nanaimo (Duke Point) route

Starting June 26, two vessels will provide 16 sailings per day between 5:15 a.m. and 10:45 p.m., seven days a week until Sept. 2.

BC Ferries say for the summer service on the Horseshoe Bay – Langdale route, a second dedicated vessel will provide extra sailings, throughout the season. To meet peak demand between Metro Vancouver and the Southern Gulf Islands, BC Ferries also scheduled additional sailings for this route.

The company advise that the most popular travel times during the summer are generally Thursday and Friday afternoons, as well as Saturday mornings for travellers departing from Tsawwassen and Horseshoe Bay terminals. Sunday afternoons are often popular for travellers returning from the sunshine coast or Vanocuver Island. To avoid sailing waits, BC Ferries recommends customers reserve, or travel outside these times.

Customers without a reservation can see the best times to travel on their website, bcferries.com. Details of summer promotions, affecting over 1,o00 sailings are also detailed on the website.
