About BC Ferries



Journey On Board the Northern Sea Wolf, Launching Summer 2018

BC Ferries is proud to announce the name of our newest vessel the Northern Sea Wolf. Revered for their dedication to their packs, the Sea Wolf is believed to be a manifestation of the Orca and has come to symbolize family and loyalty in First Nations culture. Today, it is said that the spirit of the Sea Wolf protects those travelling their oceans. And now you can explore the natural beauty of their habitat, by stepping into a world of rugged glacial fjords, towering old-growth rainforests and rich First Nations history. Through picturesque waters of the Inside Passage, home to sea lions and humpback whales, your journey will take you 10 hours north from Port Hardy to Bella Coola, and into the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest.
