A ferry’s docking accident Tuesday morning in Gibsons has impacted a Nanaimo route.
B.C. Ferries has cancelled the last sailing of the day today, March 26, out of Nanaimo’s Departure Bay terminal.
The Queen of Surrey crashed into a dock, damaging both the vessel and terminal marine structures.
B.C. Ferries was forced to re-deploy vessels, which is the reason why the scheduled 8:45 p.m. sailing from Departure Bay and the 6:35 p.m. sailing from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay were cancelled.
“We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience you may experience as a result of these cancellations,” noted a service advisory from B.C. Ferries.
The ferry corp has advised that the Queen of Coquitlam will be re-deployed to the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale route on Wednesday.
