Spirit of Vancouver Island To Go For Refit

Thursday, February 07, 2002
The M.V. Spirit of Vancouver Island will be removed from service for annual refit from Monday, February 11 to Sunday, March 17, 2002 inclusive. During this period the M.V. Queen of Saanich will be the replacement vessel. All departures will remain as scheduled. The M.V. Queen of Saanich will operate from Swartz Bay at 7:00 am, 11:00 am, 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm and from Tsawwassen at 9:00 am, 1:00 pm, 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Because the M.V. Queen of Saanich is a slightly smaller vessel, some overloads and delays can be expected at peak sailing times. Passengers are advised to plan their travels accordingly. The M.V. Spirit of British Columbia returns to service from refit on Thursday, Feb. 7 which allows for one "Spirit" vessel to be in service on the Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay route at all times. The M.V. Spirit of Vancouver Island is expected to return to service on Monday, Mar. 18, 2002.
