As the water taxi travels faster than the barge, vehicles will generally depart via the barge before the passengers and arrive after them. Customers should review the different sailing times and plan to be separated from their vehicles prior to departure and after arrival. BC Ferries will be offering a complimentary shuttle service in Bella Coola for vehicle passengers needing to drop off or retrieve their vehicles.

For the full sailing schedule, please visit our website at www.bcferries.com.

Reservations for the water taxi and barge service are required and can be made by calling 1-888-BCFERRY(223-3779).

For customers with existing bookings during this period, we will be in touch shortly with your updated departure times.

BC Ferries would like to thank its customers for their patience during the alternate service and we look forward to returning the Northern Sea Wolf to service in May. For traffic updates or more schedule information please call us toll free at 1-888-BCFERRY (223-3779), check our website at www.bcferries.com.
