New ferry arrives in BC

The second of three new BC ferries built in Poland has arrived in British Columbia.

The Salish Eagle docked in Victoria, Monday, after completing a 10,000-mile journey.

It took 38 days to sail from Poland, across the Atlantic, through the Panama Canal and up the Pacific Coast to B.C.

Its sister ship, the Salish Orca, is already here and will begin serving the Comox-Powell River route in April. The Salish Eagle will serve the Gulf Islands this summer.

The third ferry, the Salish Raven, is under construction. The vessels can run on either LNG or diesel.
