Cancelled Sailing
Descanso Bay (Gabriola Island) – Nanaimo Harbour
Sundays, April 14 and 21, 2024

On April 14 and 21, Operational Readiness Exercises are scheduled to take place resulting in the following sailing being cancelled on both Sunday mornings:

8:10 am departing Descanso Bay (Gabriola Island)

The regular schedule is expected to resume with the 8:45 am sailings from Nanaimo Harbour and Descanso Bay.

Schedules with dates included above can be found at: https://www.bcferries.com/routes-fares/schedules/seasonal/NAH-GAB and on the BC Ferries App.

Additionally, to ensure the safe operation of our terminal facilities, BC Ferries will be carrying out necessary terminal maintenance at the Descanso Bay terminal on April 16 and 17, 2024.

To mitigate traffic disruptions for our customers, maintenance activities will be carried out overnight between the hours of 10:00 pm – 5:30 am, and all efforts will be made to minimize the noise for our neighbors.

This work will include the use of equipment that may increase the normal sound levels within the terminal, and construction crews will make every effort to minimize noise as much as possible.

BC Ferries thanks their customers for their patience and understanding as we complete this planned training exercise and terminal maintenance.

Our goal is to inform our customers, as early as possible, of any changes to our scheduled sailings. For up-to-date sailing and departure information, visit bcferries.com or follow @BCFerries on X.
