Spirit of British Columbia Mid-Life Upgrade

The Spirit of British Columbia has returned to BC following extensive upgrades, including a conversion to dual fuel that will enable her to run on natural gas. We’re underway preparing her for service with sea trials, crew training and vessel certification. Over the May long weekend, she will be performing sea trials in the Georgia Strait and continuing with preparations for service with crew training while the vessel is in berth at Tsawwassen. We are excited to welcome her back into service in time for the summer season.

BC Ferries' Newest Class of Vessels

BC Ferries is building two new ferries to serve the Northern Gulf Islands. We encourage you to share your feedback on the passenger amenities that you would like to see considered when finalizing the design. These vessels will be the first of up to seven possible vessels of this type to be built in the coming ten years as we continue to renew our fleet.

The two new, minor class vessels are scheduled to enter the fleet by 2020.
