The 9 a.m. sailing from Swartz Bay is also holding in dock and is estimated to be roughly one hour behind schedule.
The Hornby Island to Denman Island sailing is operating on a modified schedule.
In a release BC Ferries apologized for the inconvenience, saying the safety of passengers and crew is their top priority.
“We don’t take the decision to modify sailings lightly, as we know customers rely on us to get to their destinations. We will resume regular scheduled service as soon as it is safe to do so.”
