It’s expected to be a busy Easter long weekend at BC Ferries terminals throughout coastal BC.
The transportation giant has added 89 sailings on three routes and Manager of Communications and Media Relations with BC Ferries, Astrid Braunschmidt said that includes a route that services the Sunshine Coast.
“We’ve added eight extra sailings between Horseshoe Bay and Langdale and with the weather pretty nice this weekend, hopefully, they’ll be doing that for sure.”
There will also be eleven additional sailings on the Departure Bay-Horseshoe Bay route.
Thursday, Friday, and Monday are expected to be the busiest times.
The Canada Day and August long weekends are the busiest times of year at BC Ferries.
