Service Notice Whaletown, Cortes Island
Terminal Upgrades
Monday April 4 to Tuesday May 31, 2016

Please be advised construction activities will take place at the Whaletown Terminal on Cortes Island between April 4 and May 31, 2016. The work includes construction of a new water line, sewage treatment system and a waiting room building.

During construction the parking area near the waiting room will not be available to our customers; the upper parking lot will be available for parking during this period.

Customers may also experience changes to queuing and passenger pick-up and drop-off. Please follow all posted signs or the direction of crew.

Prior to construction of the new waiting room, the existing waiting room will be demolished; a tent will be made available until the new waiting room is completed. A portable washroom will be onsite until the new washroom facility is available.

There will be no interruption to the sailing schedule. Please follow the direction of staff to ensure safe and efficient movement around the terminal.

BC Ferries would like to thank its customers for their patience and understanding as we complete this necessary work.
