Schedule Change
Chemainus-Thetis Island-Penelakut Island

To improve on-time reliability of the MV Kuper, BC Ferries is adjusting sailing schedule times on the Chemainus-Thetis Island-Penelakut Island route effective October 1, 2021. 
Vessel and terminal employees tried a number of operational adjustments to enhance on-time performance on this route over the last few months; unfortunately, these changes did not meet expectations. As a result, BC Ferries worked with the Ferry Advisory Committee to revise the sailing schedule, changing departure and arrival times to allow sufficient time for loading, unloading and transits between terminals. 

Schedule tables between Chemainus-Thetis Island, Chemainus-Penelakut Island, and Thetis Island-Penelakut Island found on are now live.   

We appreciate the community support on making these schedule changes, look forward to improving the timeliness of sailings, and wish to acknowledge the understanding of customers who rely on safe and timely ferry service.

Our goal is to inform our customers as early as possible of any changes to our scheduled sailings. We recommend that for the most up-to-date sailing and departure information for this route, customers check, follow @BCFerries on Twitter or call us toll free at 1-888-223-3779.
