558 spirit of vancouver island 475w


The BC Ferry Spirit of Vancouver Island has now returned to service after completing its upgrade and liquified natural gas (LNG) conversion in Poland this spring. The vessel is now capable of operating on LNG and will along with her sister vessel, the Spirit of British Columbia, reduce BC Ferries’ CO2 emissions by an estimated 12,500 tonnes per year. The 1993-built ferry services the Vancouver (Tsawwasssen) – Victoria (Swartz Bay) route. BC Ferries now has five ships that operate on cleaner natural gas, two Spirit-class and three Salish-class ferries.
