Vancouver Island-bound travellers hoping to hit the road for the B.C. Day long weekend could find themselves facing major headaches if they don’t already have a reservation.
BC Ferries says sailings from the Tsawwassen terminal to Swartz Bay and Duke Point are full through Thursday, Friday and up until Saturday at 3 p.m.
“Customers w/out a reservation will experience multiple waits,” the company said on Twitter.
“If your plans are flexible, it will be less busy after 4pm on Sat. or on Sun.”
Earlier Thursday, the ferry company told travellers it had stopped selling tickets to vehicles that didn’t already have bookings for the remainder of the day.
The notice did not affect people with bookings or walk-on passengers.
There was still limited standby vehicle capacity for Nanaimo-bound passengers from the Horseshoe Bay terminal, BC Ferries said.
