Everyone is accustomed to seasonal changes in the BC Ferries schedule. But the switch to the summer schedule this week was bound to cause a bit of confusion.
People should especially take note of the ferries that accommodate high school students who have to travel off-island for school.
As of June 20, the 7:30 a.m. ferry that leaves Bowen Island departs at 7:20 so you might not have time for that third (or fourth) cup of coffee. However, knowing that teenagers have a tougher time than most with early mornings, BC Ferries is keeping the 7:30 departure for weekdays until the end of school (June 27.)
Likewise, although the summer schedule has the 3:30 ferry from Horseshoe Bay switching to 3:20, next Monday to Friday you still get that extra 10 minutes to make it to the terminal.
Just remember, however, that the new schedule has no exceptions this weekend. It's 7:20 or 3:20 or bust.
