Queen of New Westminster will resume sailings at 10 a.m. Monday

BC Ferries sailings cancelled between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay

Monday morning, B.C. Ferries said the issue was resolved and the vessel will resume service.

According to the company, one of the the Queen of New Westminster's controllable pitch propellers is having a problem and thus the ferry can't sail until it's repaired. Passengers with reservations will be refunded the reservation fee and will get on the next available sailing.

The ferry operator says the 6 a.m. sailing from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay and the return 8 a.m. trip from Swartz Bay to the Mainland have been cancelled because of ongoing issues aboard the Queen of New Westminster.

Those customers will need to check in at the terminal at the original check in time for their first reserved sailing, so BC Ferries staff can line customers up in the proper order.

It recommends that customers who don't have a reservation show up well in advance of the sailing they'd like to travel on, whether they're on foot or in a vehicle.

"Both terminals are going to be extremely busy today", Humphries said.

"As it's the summer season, all of our ferries are in use at the moment across the province", she said. It added sailings to help clear the backed traffic.

The BC Ferry Queen of New Westminster is back in action after crews fixed mechanical problems that prompted a total of eight sailing cancellations on Sunday and Monday.
