B.C. Ferries gears up for long weekend

Ferry travellers between Nanaimo and Tsawwassen will have to put up with traffic congestion at the Departure Bay terminal over the Easter long weekend (April 6-9).

Repair work continues at the B.C. Ferries Duke Point terminal with a reopening scheduled for later this month.

The terminal was knocked out of commission Dec. 20 when the Coastal Inspiration crashed while docking, damaging the ferry’s bow doors and the terminal’s lower vehicle ramp.

Deborah Marshall, B.C. Ferries spokeswoman, said no definite date is set for the reopening, but it will be after the long weekend.

The ferry corporation added extra sailings on the Departure Bay to Horseshoe Bay route for the weekend, including: Thursday (April 5) at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.; and Friday (April 6) at 9:30 a.m.

An extra sailing Sunday (April 8) is at 1:45 p.m. and an extra boat sails Monday (April 9) at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
