(How often, on average, do you encounter overloads on the ferry, either to or from the mainland, causing you to miss the ferry you had intended catching?)

  • The ferry is running at capacity, so any irregular event means an overflow.Why can't bc ferries publish loads so pax can perhaps choose a better time to travel???

  • The overloads are often unpredictable, and vary seasonally. They are absolutely crazymaking.

  • FRIDAYS TO BOWEN AND MONDAYS TO HSB. SUMMER IS WORSE. LEAVING BOWEN ON MONDAY MORNINGS CAN ALSO BE A PROBLEM

  • Define overload. A vehicle packed with vehicles almost always has space for foot passengers. Technically, there's only been 2 or 3 overloads in the past 10 years!

  • Early mornings, but our schedules are such that it is not imperative to catch that particular ferry. If there is a critical time we get in line very early regardless of the time or day of the week.

  • I take advantage of the time to read books.
    9/26/2012 7:39 PM

  • Not often, but I arrive VERY early (45 mins+ before the sailing) to catch the ferry and I would prefer to not have to do this.
