The Albert J. is in Cowichan Bay, not Campbell River. Looks like a twin in that first pic, either the Nicola or even the Garibaldi II, wait I doubt she even got BCF colours. It also looks like both of those pictures were taken at Deas also.

Yep, it's the Nicola next to her. And yes, these were taken at Deas
Actually, the Garibaldi II bears only a slight semblance to her sisters. I rode on her last summer. It was a gorgeous trip, actually; I intend to do it again. I spent the whole trip in the wheelhouse, ahehehe...
Of course you're allowed on her, for free even. Woodfibre used to be a small village, so there is quite the trail system over there that goes to all sorts of nice lakes. I've been meaning to go over there to see what it's like.

What Nick said on reply #3 is incorrect. The Nimpkish has always had that name. The Nicola used to be called Quadra Queen. The Tachek was used as a spare and an extra traffic ferry. I dont think the Mayne Queen ever ran on the Campbell River route but I could be wrong about this but, the stuff I said about the Nimpkish, Tachek, and Nicola(ex. Quadra Queen) is correct
That ISN'T the boat I saw on Sunday! It was definately a sister to the Albert, but it still had the Expo BC Ferries paint on it (blue funnel with stripes down the side), and a big ramp on the front (like the Kwuna, but it was at a 90 degree angle). What other boat could it be? Maybe the Nicola?
