Campbell River - Quadra Island (Quathiaski Cove)
October 9 - November 18

Temporary Vessel Replacement

On Tuesday, October 9, the MV Powell River Queen will be removed from service for scheduled maintenance. The MV Bowen Queen will commence service on the route with the 9:15 pm departure from Quathiaski Cove.

Due to the deck configuration of the MV Bowen Queen and available over-height space, all vehicles over 6’8” in height will be directed to the over-height lanes, in an effort to maximize loading capacity. Customers may notice a change in lane assignments both in the terminal and on the vessel; the maximum width for this vessel is 10 feet (3.048m).

The MV Powell River Queen will return to the Quathiaski Cove-Campbell River route on Sunday November 18, 2018 as of the 3:00 pm sailing departing from Quathiaski Cove.

BC Ferries would like to thank its customers for their patience and understanding during this maintenance period.

Our goal is to inform our customers as early as possible of any changes to our scheduled sailings. We recommend that for the most up-to-date sailing and departure information our customers also follow BCFerries on Twitter, visit our Current Conditions webpage at or call us toll free at 1-888-223-3779.
