Some sailings between Quadra and Cortes cancelled

BC Ferries sailings between Cortes Island and Quadra Island have been cancelled due to high winds.

As of 9:30 on Wednesday morning, four sailings between the two islands have been cancelled. The 9:50 a.m. sailing departing Quadra Island will not be running, and the 11:05 a.m. from Cortes will also be cancelled.

“The safety of our passengers and crew is of primary importance to us,” said the service notice from BC Ferries. “We don’t take the decision to cancel sailings lightly, as we know customers rely on us to get to their destinations. We will resume service as soon as it is safe to do so.”
