The Canadian Coast Guard says a stranded container barge has been refloated, after running aground off Quadra Island over the weekend.
The Nana Provider became stuck just before 8 p.m. on Saturday on the southwest coast of the island between Quathiaski Cove and Yaculta.
A Coast Guard spokesperson said the barge has now been moved and secured in Campbell River.
The agency added that no marine pollution had been observed during the operation, but that it was continuing to monitor the situation.
Divers have been working since the weekend to assess the damage and determine the best way to refloat the vessel.
Local tour operators say a large reef extends under the area where the barge became grounded.
It remains unclear how the barge, which was carrying rail cars and should have been in deep, mid-channel water, became grounded.
Six people were aboard the tug that was towing the barge. None of them were injured, and the tug itself did not run aground.
Transport Canada said it will be following up with the barge owner and tug operator to determine if there were any violations of the Canada Shipping Act.
