Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen’s 2 p.m. sailing is 97 per cent full and the 3 p.m. sailing is 50 per cent full.

Tsawwassen to Duke Point has a one sailing wait with the 3:15 p.m. ferry full and the 5:45 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. 82 and 91 per cent full, respectively. Meanwhile the Duke Point to Tswwassen situation is similar, although the 8:15 is only 78 per cent full.

Your best bet is Departure Bay to Nanaimo, which is showing the 3:55 virtually full, but the 5 p.m. just 51 per cent full and the 6:15 p.m. only 3 per cent booked. The 3:55 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. ferries from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo are each between 40 and 50 per cent booked.
