This week, BC Ferries is resuming the Brentwood Bay—Mill Bay route which was shut down in April.

Starting Wednesday June 24, the local ferry service will be running daily, on the following schedule:

  • From Brentwood Bay: 7:30 a.m. (except Sunday), 8:40 a.m., 9:50 a.m., 11 a.m., 1:15 p.m., 2:25 p.m., 3:35 p.m., 4:45 p.m. and 5:55 p.m.
  • From Mill Bay: 8:05 a.m. (except Sunday), 9:15 a.m., 10:25 a.m., 11:35 a.m., 1:50 p.m., 3 p.m., 4:10 p.m., 5:20 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

The provincial Coastal Ferry Service Contract was amended in April to allow BC Ferries to pause service on that route in April due to safety concerns at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

All passengers are required to carry a face covering and, if asked to, put them on while on board the vessel, in keeping with Transport Canada regulations.

Earlier this week, BC Ferries announced an expansion of summer service compared to current levels, adding up to 120 more sailings per week than were available in the month of June.
