A brand new era is about to begin for the Royal Canadian Navy with the arrival ceremony for HMCS Max Bernays, the first Harry DeWolf-class Arctic Offshore Patrol Vessel to be transferred to Canada’s Pacific Fleet.

The vessel departed Halifax on March 11th. Its journey took it through the storied Panama Canal and along the Pacific coast and is expected to arrive at its new homeport in Esquimalt at around 10:30 a.m. on Monday morning.

The vessel is the first of four being built at Irving Shipyards in Halifax and is the first Harry DeWolf-class Arctic Offshore Patrol Vessel to be transferred to Canada’s Pacific Fleet.

Residents can expect to spot the ship in Esquimalt Harbour roughly 11 a.m.
