Vesuvius ferry lineup

August 1st, 2019 — For the past few years there have often been sailing waits for the ferry to Crofton from Vesuvius on Salt Spring Island. BC Ferries answer to the problem was to replace this ferry with a smaller one, the Quinitsa, which officially carries six LESS vehicles but in reality it’s probably ten or twelve less vehicles. So now the sailing waits are more frequent and waits can be two sailings or more as the lineup for the parking lot extends its long way up a narrow two lane road past homes the residents of are often blocked in or out of. The picture above shows the Vesuvius bus starting down the wrong side of the road with the help of a flag man and a number of cars forming behind it. The picture below is the bus closer to the terminal parking lot.
