The Lax Kw’alaams Band Council has confirmed this policy for reservations on the Lax Kw’alaams Ferry. This ferry reservation policy is consistent with other ferry services operated on the coast.

Vehicle reservations for the Band Ferry can be made by calling: 250.625.2445

Vehicles with reservations must be at the ferry dock and in the line-up a minimum of twenty (20) minutes prior to scheduled sailing time of the ferry for which the reservation applies.

Reservations will be terminated for any vehicles not lined-up at least twenty (20) minutes prior to scheduled sailing time, as noted in the line above.

All vehicles with reservations that have lined-up at least twenty (20) minutes prior to scheduled sailing time will be loaded on the ferry unless one of the following applies:

  1. An emergency vehicle must be loaded, (e.g. ambulance, police).
  2. The vehicle with the reservation exceeds the weight or dimensions of the ferry or the loading ramp.
  3. The captain, at his sole discretion, determines that the vehicle, the driver of the vehicle or the passengers of the vehicle represent a health or safety risk to the vessel and other passengers.
