New ferry arrives March 27

BC Ferries’ newest vessel will make Skidegate its first stop on an open house tour of northern ports later this month.
The Northern Adventure is scheduled to dock in Skidegate on March 27, after leaving Vancouver a week earlier.
The ship will be open to the public that afternoon between 2 pm and 5:30 pm.
Purchased last year to replace the Queen of the North, which sank March 22, the two-year-old Northern Adventure has been completely renovated and modified for service on the north coast.
BC Ferries says it has three spacious outer decks, an open-air café, a lounge with 480 reclining seats, a licensed cafeteria, a gift shop and five televisions with satellite and DVD feeds.
The ship also has 70 cabins with four bunks, washrooms and showers. It starts serving the route April 1.
