A mixed bag for ferry customers, with one ship returning to service while another is docked until later this week.

BC Ferries says the Coastal Inspiration is now back in service between Horseshoe Bay and Nanaimo.

It took longer than anticipated to fix a propeller problem last week, and that led to big delays on Friday at the start of the holiday weekend.

The Coastal Renaissance is on the Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay run.

Meanwhile, the Northern Adventure has been stuck in Prince Rupert since Sunday morning due to a mechanical failure.

BC Ferries estimates it may be out of service until Thursday evening, affecting sailings to Haida Gwaii.
