A ferry passenger captured a stormy crossing during Wednesday’s windstorm.
Courtenay resident Bubba Muldoe was recording the surging sea with his phone when a giant wave hit the ship.
The footage, shot from the upstairs cabin of the ferry, shows a massive breaker suddenly covering the vehicle deck.
Muldoe captured the video during the noon sailing from Quadra Island to Campbell River.
Environment Canada warned of heavy rainfall across much of the Island on Wednesday, along with southeast winds reaching up to 70 km/h in exposed coastal sections from Nanoose Bay to Campbell River.
The choppy sailing comes just two weeks after violent windstorms that led to 130 cancelled BC Ferries sailings on 14 routes on Dec. 20.
