Horseshoe Bay Terminal

Notice of Project & Night Work

March to July, 2021

Please be advised that BC Ferries is conducting construction work at the Horseshoe Bay Terminal to maintain aging infrastructure. The work will begin in mid/late March 2021 and is expected to be complete in July 2021.

The project includes concrete restoration work on the terminal’s elevated vehicle transfer deck, which is necessary to maintain the infrastructure.  

The work may increase the normal sound levels within the terminal Monday to Friday between 7:30am to 5:30pm, and throughout the night during the first two months of the project.  This work needs to be completed overnight to minimize the impact to sailings operating out of the terminal.  BC Ferries will work closely with the contractor to minimize noise.

Traffic patterns in the terminal will be modified to accommodate the work.  Customers are reminded to follow the direction of staff.

The Horseshoe Bay Terminal Development Plan remains the long-term vision for the terminal.  While we revisit our capital planning in light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business, we will complete these critical infrastructure upgrades to ensure we can continue to provide safe, reliable, and efficient service for our customers through this terminal.

We apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause.  BC Ferries would like to thank its customers and neighbours for their patience and understanding as we complete this necessary work.

Visit BC Ferries Service Notice page for further project updates.  For more information or traffic updates please follow @BCFerries on Twitter, visit our website at, or call us toll free at 1-888-BCFERRY (223-3779).
