One day Duke Point terminal closure for maintenance
All scheduled sailings to operate out of Departure Bay
VICTORIA –BC Ferries will temporarily close the Duke Point terminal on Saturday, March 5 for upgrades to the ramp including replacement of the hydraulic valves and the control system. To accommodate this work, sailings will operate out of the nearby Departure Bay terminal for this one day only.
This routing requires a modified schedule for the Tsawwassen – Duke Point route (which temporarily becomes the Tsawwassen – Departure Bay route).
The last sailing from Tsawwassen on Friday, March 4, 2022 will depart at its customary 10:45 p.m. sailing time, but instead of travelling to Duke Point, the ship will off-load at Departure Bay. The route will then operate out of Departure Bay for the duration of Saturday, March 5, 2022. Service between Tsawwassen and Duke Point will resume Sunday March 6, 2022.
Sailings are just over two hours and will depart on the following schedule for Saturday March 5, 2022 ONLY:
|Leaving Departure Bay||Leaving Tsawwassen|
|5:05 AM||5:15 AM|
|7:55 AM||7:45 AM|
|10:25 AM||10:35 AM|
|1:15 PM||1:10 PM|
|3:55 PM||3:55 PM|
|6:35 PM||6:35 PM|
