BC Ferries: Above & Beyond Once Again

BC Ferries agents have heart!



Danica Marrs termed an angel by grateful Mum
Heavy sailing waits to Vancouver Island on the busiest weekend of the year threatened to prevent a Langley Mother from getting to her sons bedside after he suffered a life threatening stroke.
On hearing the situation, BCF agent Danica Marrs enabled the dying mans family to board the next sailing to Nanaimo and make it to the hospital in time to say goodbye.


Congratulations BC Ferries !

Well Done Michael Corrigan & BCF Crew !

A company constantly criticized and seldom praised, CONGRATULATIONS to BC Ferries President Mike Corrigan who in spite of tough times brought in a significant earnings increase over 2014. 
A tough company to steer because everyone thinks they can do it better,
BCF is unfailingly courteous - and an unparalled treat to deal with on both a professional & passenger level
Success always comes from the top -  Kudos BC Ferries & Mike Corrigan!

Image result for governor walker Alaska
By allocating $5.5 million of unused fiscal year 2015 AMHS fuel trigger funds, Governor Walker restored funding to the 2016 Alaska Marine operating budget .
This funding allows Alaska Marine to provide the previously scheduled ferry service & thereby honor previously booked reservations. 

There is one exception - the MV Taku sailings for July and August of 2015 have been cancelled but the vessel will return to service in October

Alaska Marine May Face Ferry Cuts

 Alaska Marine Ferries: April 10, 2015
