BC Ferries: “Minor Rockslide” at Horseshoe Bay

An incident described as a “minor landslide” is impacting access to a BC Ferries terminal, the company says.

According to a travel advisory, the toboggan spilled into the Horseshoe Bay parking lot in West Vancouver on Sunday afternoon. Therefore, and due to related security issues, the parking lot is not accessible to service customers.

“Safety is our top priority and the parking lot is closed until further notice,” BC Ferries said.

No injuries were reported as a result of the incident. The company did not say whether any vehicles were damaged.

The terminal is still open and customers who need to park on site can use the lot adjacent to the ticketing and administration building, BC Ferries said.

Anyone with a vehicle in the parking lot is encouraged to register with a BC Ferries representative on site to gain access.

Apologizing for the inconvenience, BC Ferries said further updates will be provided as they become available.

That wasn’t the only inconvenience experienced by passengers over the weekend, as four sailings to and from Horseshoe Bay were canceled due to weather conditions.

Dozens more were canceled on the Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay, Tsawwassen-Duke Point, Tsawwassen-Gulf Islands and Comox-Powell River routes.
