More Queen of Alberni sailings cancelled on July 1: BC Ferries

Long weekend travel across the water is always an exercise in patience, sorely tested by frustration. But as Paul Johnson reports an already-packed schedule has been complicated this weekend - by a broken ferry.

The Queen of Alberni has had all of its Friday sailings cancelled due to damages on the ferry, according to BC Ferries.

The following sailings for July 1 have been cancelled:

“Though the repairs to the Queen of Alberni are significant, with a number of tests and trials remaining to ensure it is ready to sail, we anticipate it will resume service for its 7:40 a.m. sailing from Departure Bay on Saturday, July 2, 2022,” BC Ferries staff said.

“If you do not have a booking on this route for June 30 or July 1, we recommend making alternative travel plans as a foot passenger, and booking in advance is strongly recommended.”

On Thursday, eight Queen of Alberni sailings were cancelled.
