Northern Expedition, the brand new custom-built ferry for northern service will be conducting dock trials in Skidegate Landing Monday evening, for a couple of hours, starting at 7:30 pm. It’s islanders first-ever chance to see the new ferry, which will enter service later this month sailing between Port Hardy and Prince Rupert. The vessel is just over 150 metres long and can carry 130 cars and 600 passengers. It was built in Germany and arrived in BC earlier this year.Info about the vessel is available at www.bchwys.ca/BCF/New_Fy_NE/NE_1B.htm
