Whaletown Terminal Lineups

Roadway Congestion Causing Safety & Service Concerns

BC Ferries requests customers who are parking vehicles on the roadway leading to the Whaletown Terminal on Cortes Island, as a way to ensure they are loaded on the first sailing the following day, do so only after the last daily sailing has left.

Both safety and loading concerns arise when people leave vehicles parked in the lineup on the road prior to the sailing scheduled to depart Cortes Island at 5:50 pm.

BC Ferries employees strive to provide the best customer service possible, and we ask for the cooperation of our customers in eliminating the safety concerns by only leaving a vehicle in the lineup after the last daily sailing has departed.

Thank you for your courtesy and support.
