If we get some nice weather, the BC Ferries terminals will be even busier than anticipated during the Victoria Day long weekend.
To plan for the increased traffic volume, the transportation giant is adding 92 sailings from Thursday through Sunday.
While the August and Canada Day long weekends are the busiest weekends of the year, the Victoria Day long weekend is in the top five and Communications and Media Relations Manager with BC Ferries Astrid Braunschmidt said the extra sailings are added to keep up with demand.
“Making a reservation certainly does guarantee the sailing of your choice. We have posted on our website, under the travel planning section a bit of a grid so that customers can see the most popular sailings and which traditionally have less traffic, so if they don’t have a reservation they can plan accordingly.  We really recommend people look at that if making a reservation or planning a trip.”
BC Ferries is adding eleven sailings to the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale route.
BC Ferries is adding 15 sailings to the Departure Bay-Horseshoe Bay route.
