BC Ferries Queen of Burnaby

VICTORIA – BC Ferries’ Queen of Burnaby will be temporarily removed from service on the Comox-Powell River route from January 6, 2016 through the end of January to repair a propeller hub.

During this period, the MV Island Sky will operate on a modified schedule, providing service between Comox, Texada Island and Powell River, while the North Island Princess operates on the Saltery Bay-Earls Cove route on a modified schedule. Customers should be aware that the first daily sailing times are earlier than current schedules. See bcferries.com/schedules for sailing timings.

For Texada Island foot passenger customers, a water taxi service is planned to operate between Texada Island and the government dock next to Westview Terminal in Powell River. This service will operate on the regularly published sailing times for the Texada-Powell River route.

BC Ferries apologizes for any inconvenience caused by these changes and thanks customers for their patience while this critical maintenance is being carried out. Three new Salish Class vessels are currently under construction for BC Ferries. The first vessel, the Salish Orca, will replace the Queen of Burnaby on the Comox-Powell River route by the end of 2016.
