Our History

BC Ferries started out with two ships, two terminals, and around 200 employees.

50 years later, BC Ferries is one of the largest, most sophisticated ferry systems in the world, with 35 vessels servicing 47 destinations. Schedules include frequent, year-round sailings to some of the most fascinating and remote corners of the coast. The staff now exceeds 4,700 in the summer months, and their commitment to customer safety and service has never been stronger.
