With adverse weather continuing across the Hecate Strait, BC Ferries has announced the cancellation of its plans to attempt the Prince Rupert to Skidegate run today, that run one which had been rescheduled on Monday owing to poor weather.
As a result, the Northern Expedition will make an attempt to cross the Strait on Wednesday with a 2:30 PM departure time a return that same night at 11 from Skidegate for a Prince Rupert arrival at 6AM Thursday.

However, depending on how the current pacific front system moves through the region, that sailing may itself be up for review; while the Thursday sailings are questionable as well, explained by BC Ferries as part of their Service Notice today."Weather is expected to be outside our safety parameters following this round trip, and the Thursday sailings departing Prince Rupert at 10:00 am and Skidegate at 10:00 pm are at risk of being cancelled.
