Nanaimo-based fast ferry service offering late night sailings for concerts and Canucks games

Recommended Posts


“We’ve had so much demand for late-night sailings, as people from Vancouver Island are looking for an easier and more affordable way to enjoy evening concerts and games in Vancouver,” said Alastair Caddick, Hullo’s Chief Executive Officer.

“After attending events on the mainland, people can now safely travel back home and enjoy the comfort of their own bed.”


The typical daily schedule from Nanaimo to Vancouver has sailings from: 7 a.m., 11 a.m., 3:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

From Vancouver to Nanaimo the usual schedule is: 9 a.m., 1 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

And going forward, there will be added sailings from Vancouver to Nanaimo at 10:30 p.m. for Canucks games and 11:30 p.m. for concerts. When those events are happening, the late night sailings will replace the 9:30 p.m. sailing.

I find it kinda funny that if a private firm offers fast ferries, no one bats an eye.

But try to build fast ferries locally for BC Ferries, everyone gets their knickers in a knot.

The last “fast” ferries ended up costing a tonne and were slower than the current ones on mildly choppy days iirc.
