BC Ferries is putting extra Saturday sailings on the Crofton – Vesuvius route after a generator problem knocked the Skeena Queen out of service early Friday, leaving only one ship operating between the main Island and Salt Spring.

The Skeena Queen serves the Swartz Bay – Fulford Harbour route.

Ferries says they don’t expect it to be back in service until Saturday evening.

A water taxi service will be in place operating on the current posted schedule, taking foot passengers between the government docks at Fulford Harbour and Swartz Bay.

The following additional sailings are being added between Crofton and Vesuvius for Saturday January 10, 2015:

6:00 am exiting Vesuvius
6:30 am exiting Crofton
7:40 am exiting Vesuvius
8:15 am exiting Crofton
