For Central Coast Travellers looking to connect with the Northern Expedition sailing of New Year's Day, BC Ferries has the following advisory.

Complimentary water taxi service from Bella Bella to Shearwater will be provided for customers travelling on the Northern Expedition 6:00 pm Port Hardy departure on January 1, 2022 and needing to connect to Shearwater. The water taxi will depart Bella Bella at 2:15 am on January 2, 2022.

The Ferry Service  notes that they anticipate that the regular transit of the Northern Sea Wolf run will resume on January 7th.

BC Ferries was not specific on the nature of the staffing issues that have impacted this weekend's sailings on the Central Coast, further south, what appear to be COVID-19 related staffing situations have resulted in a number of cancelled sailings for the southern fleet.

Updates on BC Ferries Service through the New year's weekend can be accessed through the Service Notices page.
