BC Ferries adds webcams to Gulf Islands terminals, Crofton

BC Ferries announced several new webcams have come online with live and near-live images of vehicle staging areas at terminals serving Salt Spring Island. 

Starting Thursday, May 9, among the 30 new cameras offering real-time views were those facing the Fulford Harbour, Long Harbour and Vesuvius Bay vehicle staging areas — and notably, there’s also one in Crofton, so islanders can finally see the line-up on Chaplin Street. 

“Our customers have told us that reliability is something they value in their ferry service,” said customer experience VP Melanie Lucia. “They have places to be and want to be able to plan their travel and plan their day.” 

New cameras are also in operation on Pender, Galiano, Mayne and Gabriola Island terminals. 

In addition to the new minor route cameras, visitors to the website can also now access current conditions information, the latest service notices and BC Ferries’ vessel tracker. Visit
