Changes to the Campbell River – Quathiaski Cove Ferry

Two new Island Class hybrid e-ferries will be taking over BC Ferries  Campbell River-Quadra Island run in early 2022. 

One vessel will be in service 16 hours a day.

 The other will be in operation during the peak hours,  starting at 7:30am.

Both vessels will tie up at Quathiaski Cove, on Quadra Island, when not in service. 

BC Ferries has drawn up a proposed schedule which includes 

  • Up to 59% more capacity in peak times
  • No changes to the Heriot Bay – Whaletown schedule
  • Short breaks in the schedule in the morning and evening to provide crew on both vessels with their required meal breaks
