Revised Schedule for Additional Fueling Requirement
Tsawwassen – Southern Gulf Islands
Wednesdays; October 10, 2018 to March 31, 2019
Starting Wednesday October 10, the Salish Eagle will be fueling every Wednesday in Swartz Bay. As a result, the following schedule changes will be in effect for all subsequent Wednesday evenings:
The 8:40 pm departing Sturdies Bay (Galiano Island) will now depart at 8:20 pm bound for Village Bay. The vessel will then depart Village Bay at 8:55 pm bound for Otter Bay, and finally the vessel will depart Otter Bay at 9:35 pm bound for Swartz Bay .
As a result of the modified schedule, the 8:55 pm departing Village Bay (Mayne Island) bound for Long Harbour (Salt Spring Island) has been cancelled.
Please note that customers departing from Tsawwassen destined for Long Harbour will now be transferring between vessels at Sturdies Bay, leaving the Salish Class vessel and loading on to the Queen of Cumberland. Customers departing from Village Bay destined for Long Harbour will not be able to make this connection.
Customers destined for Otter Bay (Pender Island) will not transfer at Sturdies Bay, and instead will remain on the Salish Class vessel.
I'm trying to understand this better. Previously refueling occurred Saturday evenings at Tsawwassen. Now it has been changed to Wednesday evenings at Swartz Bay, or is this an additional fuel stop? Saturday afternoon schedule still shows the Salish Eagle at Tsawwassen for multiple hours which makes me think two separate stops are required for whatever reason. . .
