What is Onboard


BC Ferries is carefully reopening additional terminal and onboard amenities across the fleet. Expanded offerings include a limited menu at the Coastal Cafe and Arbutus Coffee Bar. Customers can now enjoy packaged food items and limited hot food services on select routes between Vancouver Island, Metro Vancouver, Southern Gulf Islands, Sunshine Coast and North Coast. All hot food will be served in packaging for customers to take to their vehicles, outer deck or limited cafeteria seating. To ensure the health and safety of its customers and employees, the company will strictly adhere to provincial and federal guidelines during this reopening phase. BC Ferries is ensuring the safety of passengers and crew by supporting physical distancing in food service areas, enhancing cleaning and sanitization efforts and reducing the number of touch points.

Vessels serving customers on BC Ferries routes between Vancouver and Vancouver Island, the Southern Gulf Islands and Sunshine Coast offer a wide range of passenger services. The mix varies from one ship to the next but the goal is always the same: to make your voyage comfortable and enjoyable. Look for the following amenities on your next trip with us across the water.


All-inclusive buffet, self-serve restaurant or coffee and snacks - something for every appetite.
