The BC Day weekend will be a busy one for BC Ferries, which is advising travellers to plan ahead before sailing. The increased volumes are great news for the organization, and signal a return to vibrancy for our tourism industry.
"Historically, this weekend sees the highest traffic volumes of the year. The most popular travel times are Thursday and Friday afternoon, as well as Saturday morning," states a news release from BC Ferries.
You can reserve a sailing ahead of time, or try a new feature that allows passengers to use their phones to check-in.
“These devices will provide terminal staff with an additional option to check-in customers, which will speed up the check-in process overall,” BC Ferries says. “Follow traffic control flaggers and have your booking reference number ready upon arrival at the ticket booth to speed up the check-in process if you have an advanced booking.”
