·1 min read

Sailings between Alliford Bay and Skidegate BC Ferries terminals are experiencing delays due to the ship MV Kwuna experiencing a mechanical problem with a “right angle drive.”

The MV Kwuna is currently docked at Aliiford Bay. BC Ferries is working to resolve the issue and will release more information when it becomes available.

“The engineers are working on the issue and hope to have it resolved within the next 30 minutes,” Deborah Marshal, BC executive director and public affairs, told The Northern View.
