Northern Adventure back Saturday

  • Jan. 24, 2014 1:00 p.m.

The Northern Adventure ferry is returning to service this weekend on the Prince Rupert-Skidgate and Inside Passage routes, after its annual refit. The larger Northern Expedition ferry is going away for its annual refit as of Saturday (Jan. 25), after serving on the Rupert-Skidegate route for the past four months. The Northern Adventure will continue on the Haida Gwaii route until fall, while the Northern Expedition will return to the Inside Passage route sometime this spring. BC Ferries has slightly rearranged the Northern Adventure’s schedule between Feb. 8 and 19 to accommodate the All-Native Basketball Tournament in Prince Rupert. A special sailing will leave Prince Rupert on Saturday, Feb. 8 at 3:30 pm, arriving in Skidegate at 10 pm. It will then leave Skidegate on Sunday, Feb. 9 at 1 am, arriving in Rupert at 8 am. The Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday sailings that week are all the same as the regular schedule. Another special sailing will be held on Sunday, Feb. 16, with the ferry leaving Prince Rupert at 7 am, arriving in Skidegate at 1 pm. It will then leave Skidegate at 4 pm, arriving in Rupert Sunday night at 10 pm. The regular Sunday, Monday and Tuesday sailings will not be held that week, with the next sailing leaving Skidegate at one minute before midnight on Wednesday, Feb. 19. Then it’s back to the regular schedule. Full details are available on the BC Ferries website.
