B.C. Ferries to put on extra sailings during Games

The first and last sailings at Swartz Bay will change for the month of February, as the Olympic Games take over the Lower Mainland.

“We are pleased to offer these additional sailings so Olympic ticket holders from Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast can attend the festivities and return home that same evening,” said David Hahn, B.C. Ferries’ president/CEO.

“We also expect tourists to visit Vancouver Island and our other destinations as they explore British Columbia as part of their Olympic experience.”

Early morning and late-night sailings will be added from Feb. 12 to 28.

An extra sailing will leave Swartz Bay each day at 6 a.m., with the additional late trip from Tsawwassen scheduled for midnight.

Extra up-Island sailings will include a 10 p.m. boat from Departure Bay to Horseshoe Bay and midnight sailings from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay.
