BC Ferries Vessel Out of Service

Thursday, March 03, 2005
The Queen of Vancouver remains out of service until further notice due to a significant mechanical problem. BC Ferries’ engineers expect the gearbox on the vessel will not be repaired until next week at the earliest. As a result of the breakdown, BC Ferries will be canceling a number of sailings on Friday, March 4 and Sunday, March 6. In order to assist with anticipated traffic volumes on the Victoria run, the Queen of Esquimalt will be redeployed from the Tsawwassen – Duke Point route to conduct one round trip on Friday and Sunday departing Tsawwassen at 6:30 p.m. and departing Swartz Bay at 8:30 p.m. The Queen of Saanich, which usually provides supplemental weekend service, is now sailing as a primary vessel on the Tsawwassen – Swartz Bay route. This ship and the Spirit of Vancouver Island are providing service every two hours on the odd hour between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m.
