Little River ferry terminal reopening Feb. 8 in Comox Valley

BC Ferries’ Little River (Comox) terminal reopens for regular service as scheduled Saturday, Feb. 8.

BC Ferries’ Little River (Comox) terminal reopens for regular service as scheduled Saturday, Feb. 8 after being closed while marine structures were upgraded or replaced.

Westview (Powell River) terminal will remain closed to continue marine structure work and is scheduled to reopen March 10. Alternate service that has been in place since both terminals closed Jan. 12 will be adjusted.

The route between Powell River and Vancouver Island will now operate out of the Little River and Saltery Bay terminals beginning Feb. 8.

Because of this routing change, the number of sailings and scheduled times have changed, and customers are advised to check specific information related to their travel plans on the BC Ferries website at www.bcferries.com (see ‘Terminal Closures’ section on the home page) or by calling 1-888-BC FERRY (1-888-223-3779).

With the reopening of Little River terminal, the flights between Powell River and Comox that have been operating since Jan. 12 will no longer be available after Feb. 7. The service between Texada Island and the Powell River area will remain unchanged until Westview reopens.

BC Ferries appreciates the patience of its customers during this temporary service adjustment and looks forward to reopening new berths at Little River and Westview terminals.

Customers requesting assistance with travel planning outside of the alternate service provided should contact customer.relations@bcferries.com.
