BC Ferries unveils new Coast Salish hull wrap

The ship will enter service at the end of June

BC Ferries’ Salish Eagle vessel is almost ready for action with a new hull wrap by Stz’uminus First Nation artist John Marston.

Marston’s depiction of red eagles adorning the hull of the new vessel represents the strength and respect the eagle carries in First Nations culture, the corporation said in a release.

The Salish Eagle will enter operation for the Tsawwassen – Southern Gulf Islands route at the end of June.
