Two BC Ferries sailings between Victoria and Vancouver were cancelled Monday (Sept. 20) morning after the ship began experiencing mechanical issues.

The main engines on the Spirit of Vancouver Island weren’t working properly, BC Ferries said in a statement. As a result, the 7 a.m. from Swartz Bay and 9 a.m. from Tsawwassen could not run.

BC Ferries said it appreciates customers’ patience. Service has resumed.
