While some may be at home resting on the holiday Monday, a huge crowd of commuters are expected to travel with BC Ferries, returning home after a weekend of Thanksgiving celebrations.
As of 8 a.m, the Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay 9 a.m. sailing is already 61 per cent full and the 10 a.m. is 66 per cent full.
The Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen 9 a.m. sailing is bound to be busy as well, sitting at 68 per cent full and the 10 a.m. at 71 per cent full.
Duke Point to Tsawwassen 10:15 a.m. sailing is 74 per cent full and the 12:45 p.m. sailing is 77 per cent full.
Departure Bay to Horseshoe Bay 9:25 a.m. sailing is zero per cent full, but the 11 a.m. sailing is 58 per cent full.
Thanksgiving weekend is the busiest travel weekend of the year for walk-on passengers, meaning that at peak times foot passengers may also experience a sailing wait.
BC Ferries advises that people make vehicle reservations in advance, and arrive 45 to 60 minutes early. Walk-on passengers are also advised to arrive 45 minutes early.
Parking lots will also fill fast, so people are asked to rideshare or take public transit to the terminals if possible.
