If you take the ferry between Comox, Powell River, and Texada Island expect some delays
According to BC Ferries, the service change is because one ship running on the route, the Island Discovery, is suffering from mechanical difficulty.
Until further notice, the regular 11:50 am and 8:45 pm sailings from Powell River to Comox will be delayed to 1:15 pm and 10:10 pm respectively to allow time for additional sailings to/from Texada Island.
