Ferry service between Sidney, BC on Vancouver Island and Anacortes in Washington state resumes on Sunday, March 30.
The ferry doesn't run during the winter months due to bad weather and high seas.
An informal day of celebration is planned for the reopening of the Washington State Ferries Route, which has one round-trip sailing per day. It will feature marching bands and town criers, and a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police will meet the first sailing. It leaves Anacortes at 7:45 AM and arrives in Sidney at 10:50 AM.
The celebration is hosted by the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce, the Sidney Business Association, the Anacortes and Sidney Sister Cities Association and Washington State Department of Transportation.
Remember to travel with your passport!
