Recent adverse weather conditions on the North Island have prompted BC Ferries to revise Northern Expedition sailing schedules this week.
Today (Nov. 25), updated arrival and departure times include the 6:30 am sailing departing Bella Bella, as well as the 5 pm arrival into and the 9 pm departure from Prince Rupert.
Meanwhile, tomorrow, updated times include:
- 4 am arrival into Skidegate
- 8 am departure from Skidegate
- 2 pm arrival into Prince Rupert
- 5 pm departure from Prince Rupert
And on Saturday, updated times include:
- 1 am arrival into Klemtu
- 1:30 am departure from Klemtu
- 4:30 am arrival into Bella Bella
- 5:30 am departure from Bella Bella
- 11:30 am arrival into Port Hardy
“We request that customers with reservations check-in at the terminals in accordance with the scheduled sailing times to maintain their reserved status,” BC Ferries says.
It notes that customers transferring from the 7 am sailing departing Alliford Bay to Skidegate tomorrow, who are reserved to travel from Skidegate to Prince Rupert on the 8 am sailing, will be accommodated after reservation check-in has closed.
“Our goal is to inform our customers as early as possible of any changes to our scheduled sailings,” the company adds.
