The Queen of Capilano is back in business but she had a dramatic afternoon

The Queen of Capilano's 6:50 p.m. sailing left Horseshoe Bay on time after a dramatic afternoon. 

Passengers on the 2:20 p.m. watched as wave after wave crashed over the car deck, even forcing open the front gates. After the ordeal the Bowen ferry rested in dock for about an hour before returning to Horseshoe Bay without passengers. Several afternoon sailings were cancelled, stranding passengers, including high school students, on the North Shore.
