In effort to save wear on the drive motor of the Coastal Inspiration before it goes into refit this spring, a number of sailings are currently required to travel to the east of Saturna Island. This change is resulting in unacceptable delays, particularly for the late afternoon and evening sailings, in spite of significant effort to expedite loading times.

The schedule change will better enable us to get people where they’re going on time, and give our passengers greater assurance that their sailings will travel as scheduled. They also won’t have any impact on our ability to move the significant amount of people expected to travel over spring break. 

Our approach to Service Notices has changed to give customers a more personalized and self-served experience. Subscribers will continue to see critical Service Notices about sailing cancellations and sailing delays, when over 60 minutes, arrive in their inbox. Others, like parking notifications and notices about minor service impacts, will be available online by visiting Current Conditions so please check it before leaving home to ensure you have all the latest information about your sailing.
