BC Ferries’ Salish Raven, the third and final Salish Class vessel, is on its way. The vessel departed Gdansk, Poland this morning, for a 10,440 nautical mile journey bound for its new home in British Columbia.
The Transatlantic voyage will take approximately 45 to 55 days, depending on weather. The journey will include stops for refuelling in Santa Cruz, Canary Islands and Panama City, Panama. The vessel will also transit the Panama Canal and sail up the west coast of North America to British Columbia.
For those who want to join the voyage “virtually”, customers can track the ship’s progress including course, position and speed at vesselfinder.com.
Salish Orca, BC Ferries’ first dual-fuel vessel, will be introduced into service next month on the Powell River – Comox route. Salish Eagle, the second Salish Class vessel, will start service on the Tsawwassen – Southern Gulf Islands route in late June. Salish Raven will be introduced in the Southern Gulf Islands in the fall.
