Now BC Ferries has joined in on the spa trend, offering shipboard pampering while traveling the waters of British Columbia.
Beginning in mid-May 2010, travelers aboard the Spirit of British Columbia and Spirit of Vancouver Island will be able to enjoy manicures, pedicures and chair massages.
BC Ferries has partnered with C Spa to make the three services available on Thursdays-Mondays on the 7AM, 9AM, 11AM and 1PM sailings from both Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay. Appointments are on a first-come, first-served basis. Prices are $30 CDN for a manicure, $40 CDN for a pedcurei and $65 CDN for a mani-pedi. The rate is $20 CDN for a 15-minute chair massage.
The new C Spa is located in a stateroom on Deck 6 of the Spirit vessels. To book an appointment, sign up at the tour operator's desk on Deck 5.
