Reserve and Plan

Customers with vehicles over 31 feet in length or 9 feet in width and companies shipping multiple commercial vehicles on Southern Gulf Islands or minor routes (e.g. Paving, lumber, cement) are advised to call ahead to coordinate travel arrangements.

In response to increasing volumes of commercial traffic on our Southern Gulf Islands and minor routes, we would like to suggest some options that will help accommodate our commercial customers and get them to their destinations in a more timely and efficient manner.

If your company is planning to ship a number of trucks or a vehicle that is over nine (9) feet wide or longer than 31 feet in length on a particular day, we ask that you contact us in advance to find the best routes and ensure the vehicle(s) can be accommodated. There are a number of vessels that service the routes that have specific length and weight limitations. Please call 1-888-BC FERRY (223-3779) to review schedule options.

The advance notice will help us coordinate with you to accommodate your shipment(s) over the course of the day. It also allows us to check the tides for best sailing times and advise our other customers of possible sailing delays if necessary.

A second option is to use our charter service. Your company can charter a vessel for extra sailings to avoid delays and overloads that you may experience on the regular scheduled sailings.

Using our charter service will result in a customized service for your company and it may be less costly.

Please contact Customer Service Support at 1-888-223-3779 (ask for Charters) for more information about these options.

Thank you for your continued business, and we look forward to serving you in the near future.
