It’s smooth sailing for BC Ferries so far on Christmas Eve.
Deborah Marshall with BC Ferries says thanks to Mother Nature there shouldn’t be any delays.
“As far as travels today and tomorrow, travel will taper off this afternoon. Traditionally, Christmas Day is the quieter day for BC Ferries over the holidays.”
“We don’t expect any service interruption due to weather, there’s no wind predicted right now which great news is.”
Marshall says service will taper off this evening, Christmas day will be slow, but post-Christmas will be extra busy with people making their way home.
“Reservations are always a good idea, if you have a specific sailing time in mind. We do have lots of extra sailings on the Horseshoe Bay and Tsawwassen Departure Bays.”
For those travelling after Christmas, She says some routes will sell out and to make reservations now.
“People will start coming home on Boxing Day. December 27th and 28th will particularly be busy. Reservation space has already been subscribed already on some of the popular sailings, if customers are looking to make reservations, I would recommend to do it right away.”
Marshall says popular routes will sell out – especially on the 27th.
If you’re travelling by foot, arrive 30 minutes early, if you’re travelling in a vehicle without a reservation, arrive at least an hour before departure.
