With a current weather system making for adverse marine conditions, BC Ferries has cancelled a number of upcoming sailings, issuing a Service Notice that starts with tonight's sailing which was to depart Prince Rupert for Skidegate at 10 PM.

Should conditions return to a more calm marine environment, BC Ferries will return to service between  the two communities on Tuesday with a 10 AM departure.
