Some ferry sailings between Victoria and Vancouver will be running a little longer than usual for the next month.
BC Ferries says one of its vessels that runs the route, the Coastal Celebration, has a mechanical issue that means it can no longer sail through Active Pass. Instead, the ship will sail south of the area through East Point, adding about 15 minutes to the trip.
BC Ferries says it expects the delay to be in place until Nov. 26.
The other vessels on the Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay route will continue to run as usual.
BC Ferries says it apologizes for any inconvenience caused to passengers.
This change will add about 15 mins to the voyage.
