Salish Sea Arrives In Victoria

/ 97.3 The Eagle

A journey that has stretched more than 10-thousand nautical miles — from Poland to British Columbia — ended in Victoria with the arrival of the Salish Eagle — the second of three new B-C ferries. The ship is to dock at Ogden Point in Victoria, 38 days after leaving a Polish shipyard for the journey across the Atlantic Ocean and through the Panama Canal to B-C. The Eagle’s sister ship, the Salish Orca, is already in B-C and is slated to begin work on the Comox-Powell River route next month, while the Eagle will enter service on the southern Gulf Islands route by the end of June. The two vessels, and the Salish Raven, which is still under construction in Poland, can run on either L-N-G or diesel, which B-C Ferries says will provide both financial and environmental benefits.
