BC Ferries adjusts Powell River schedule

Some sailing times on Saltery Bay route will be earlier

The following is a service advisory from BC Ferries.

Effective March 25, BC Ferries is adjusting some sailing times on the Powell River (Saltery Bay) – Sechelt (Earls Cove) route. These changes are being made to maximize efficiency for customers travelling between this route and the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale route, where schedule changes are being made in response to the COVID-19 situation.
