The sailing from Skidegate to Prince Rupert will now depart at 8 a.m. on Tuesday and arrive by 3 p.m., due to anticipated adverse weather conditions and sea state in the Hecate Strait.

Environment Canada is predicting very windy weather for Haida Gwaii and Prince Rupert on Tuesday, with winds coming from the southeast at 20 km/h in the morning on Haida Gwaii then increasing to 40 to 60 km/h in the afternoon for both areas.
