BC Ferry: Coastal Celebration The Coastal Celebration was the ferry we boarded at Tsawwasen on Tuesday at 10:00 AM. Christine and I and two of our friends were heading to Swartz Bay as seniors, which incidentally means 'FREE.' We left our car on this side got our tickets with $0.00 printed clearly and took our ride across the waters. We did not plan to get off and head to Victoria. Rather we were simply doing the ride there and back and enjoying the deliciously prepared buffer dinner on the return trip. As we were finishing the home bound journey we decided that it was only 12:00 PM and we could do another round trio and be back on the mainland by 3:00 PM. So we did that. What a great idea, a great meal and great day.
Coastal Celebration was built in 2008 at a length of 160 metres. It's car capacity is 370 including 32 semis. It travels at a maximum speed of 23 knots.
