BC Ferries terminal car park not accessible after minor landslide with all roads sailing Monday after windstorm

Parking at the BC Ferries Horseshoe Bay Terminal will not be accessible until further notice after a slight rockslide toppled into the structure late Sunday afternoon.

BC Ferries is exercising great caution and closing the parking lot while waiting for safety reasons. BC Ferries told CHEK News there were no injuries from the minor rockslide.

Customers with vehicles in the parking lot are required to check in with the BC Ferries representative on site to gain access to their vehicle, the ferry company notes.

Despite the closure of the car park, the terminal remains open and customer parking is available in the car park adjacent to the ticketing and administration building.

“We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience caused by the closure of the car park. Further updates will be provided as they become available,” a BC Ferries statement read.

The ferry company also says all routes are open on Monday after several crossings were canceled on Sunday due to high winds.

Environment Canada had issued a special weather report suggesting winds could reach speeds of 90 km/h in the area.

Due to inclement weather on Vancouver Island’s east coast, “dozens of sailings” have been cancelled, including several on major routes between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland, BC Ferries says.

The ferry company adds that many people traveled this morning and passengers are urged to check the latest shipping information on the BC Ferries website.
