Customers who have reservations on the impacted sailings will be advised and will receive an automatic refund for their reservation fee.
BC Ferries apologized for the service interruption in an alert about the cancellations on the company website, adding that the decision to cancel sailings isn’t taken lightly “as we know customers rely on us to get to their destinations.”
Environment Canada has issued public weather alerts for east and west Vancouver Island where rainfall amounts up to 50 mm are expected Saturday. No alerts have been issued for Greater Victoria, but the region is expecting 25 mm of rainfall throughout the day.
