Northern Sea Wolf Handed Over to BC Ferries

Canadian ferry operator BC Ferries has taken delivery of Northern Sea Wolf, the recently acquired vessel which is intended for the company’s new mid-coast ferry service.

The delivery took place in Greece on August 30, 2017.

In April, commissioner of BC Ferries approved the purchase of the secondhand vessel for the new ferry service between Port Hardy and Bella Coola in British Columbia.

BC Ferries said that a community engagement process with representatives from local First Nations, Ferry Advisory Committee members, BC Ferries employees and the Mid-Coast Ferry Working Group have selected Northern Sea Wolf as the name for the vessel.

“We are now preparing the Northern Sea Wolf to begin service next summer,” Janet Carson, BC Ferries’ Vice President of Marketing, said.

Previously named Aqua Spirit, Northern Sea Wolf was built in 2000 and is able to accommodate a minimum of 35 vehicles and 150 passengers and crew.

The vessel is scheduled to arrive in British Columbia this fall, where it will undergo upgrades to be ready for regular service starting in summer 2018.

Sailings will depart from Port Hardy and Bella Coola five days per week during peak season.
