A dozen sailings scheduled between Bowen Island and the mainland have been cancelled for Saturday, May 20. 

The 1:55 pm sailing from Horseshoe Bay will be the final BC Ferries run leaving the mainland, and the 2:40 pm from Bowen will be the last to leave the island today. 

BC Ferries released a statement this morning warning of possible cancellations on the Horseshoe Bay (West Vancouver) to Snug Cove (Bowen Island) route, beginning with the 3:30 pm sailing from Horseshoe Bay.
