CAMPBELL RIVER, B.C. – The ferry that runs between Campbell River and Quadra Island will undergo scheduled maintenance this week.

The MV Powell River Queen will be removed from the route on Tuesday, October 9th.

The MV Bowen Queen will come in as a replacement vessel starting with the 9:15 p.m. departure from Quathiaski Cove (Quadra Island).
