The second of BC Ferries’ three LNG-fueled vessels, Salish Eagle, will officially commence service on Wednesday, June 21 on the Tsawwassen – Southern Gulf Islands route.

Salish Eagle is the second of three new Salish Class vessels that are dual-fuel and capable of operating on either natural gas or ultra-low sulphur marine diesel.

The first vessel, the Salish Orca, has already started service in mid-May.

Salish Eagle and her sister ships Salish Orca and Salish Raven were named to honor the Coast Salish people as the original mariners of the Salish Sea.

The vessel, which accommodates approximately 145 vehicles and up to 600 passengers and crew measures 107 meters in length overall and has a service speed of 15.5 knots.
