Late night commercial vehicle sailings pilot

Tsawwassen – Duke Point route from Sept. 7 – Oct. 7


VICTORIA – To better serve our commercial customers, BC Ferries is piloting late-night commercial sailings on the Tsawwassen – Duke Point route from Sept. 7 to Oct. 7, 2021.

The sailings, provided by the Queen of New Westminster, will depart Tsawwassen at 9:15 pm and depart Duke Point at 12:15 am Monday through Thursday evenings.

The additional sailings are expected to help to address the increased demand for commercial goods that has been driven by the growth of e-commerce, groceries, and general freight. The pilot will determine customer reaction and gain valuable feedback.

A limited number of passengers travelling in underheight vehicles will also be accommodated on these sailings on the main car deck. BC Ferries recommends customers book these sailings in advance.

No catering services will be offered on these trips so BC Ferries encourages customers to bring a snack with them or to use the vending machines onboard.
