COMOX, B.C- The ferry between Powell River and Little River isn’t running this morning.
According to a notice from BC Ferries, the Salish Raven cancelled the 6:15 a.m. sailing leaving Little River and the 8:05 a.m. sailing leaving from Westview due to a “mechanical difficulty”. The round trip between the two terminals at 9:55 a.m. and 11:50 a.m. was also cancelled.
The notice stated that the ship is experiencing a problem with their aft thruster.
The ferry service apologized for any inconvenience the cancellation caused, and encouraged travellers to take the route from Departure Bay, to Horseshoe Bay, to Langdale, and then from Saltery Bay to Earls Cove as an alternative.
More information on the cancellation will be reported as it becomes available.
