The return of the Kwuna has been delayed again. BC Ferries spokesperson Deborah Marshall said it now looks like the ferry won’t be out of refit until Jan. 11, and will be back on the Alliford Bay-Skidegate route Jan. 16. The ferry left in early October for a thorough refit, and was originally supposed to be back Dec. 11. That was put back until Dec. 25, and now Jan. 16. The Kwuna is being replaced by a tug and barge which operates for shorter hours, with the last sailing at 8 pm.
