BC Ferries
Reminder of Load Limits Heriot Bay Terminal
Quadra Island (Heriot Bay) - Cortes Island (Whaletown)

BC Ferries has not changed the ramp load limits at Heriot Bay on Quadra Island. The ramp load remains unchanged at 39,500 kg GVW with 5 axles, no overloads and no tridems permitted. Commercial customers should be reminded that if they plan to travel with a truck configuration that exceeds any of these requirements, then they must first contact BC Ferries to receive approval to travel. Please call BC Ferries 1-888-BCFERRY (223-3779) at least two days prior to your travel date.

For your information, Heriot Bay will be shortly undergoing a Life Extension project to the existing timber trestle and ramp; the work is to start this month and conclude end of January 2015. This project will not result in any changes to the above noted load limits.

For schedule information, please call us toll free at 1-888-BCFERRY (223-3779), check our website at or go to on your mobile device.
