BC Ferries was forced to remove the North Island Princess from service on Saturday because of a mechanical issue.

Ferries spokesperson Deborah Marshall says the issue was fixed and free ferry service on the Earls Cove-Saltery Bay run has been offered to all passengers today and tomorrow.

Marshall says you don’t need to show a coupon or code for the free service on the route.

Full details and schedules for the route can be found at the BC Ferries website.
