The COVID-19 safety measures for the Province’s inland ferry system help protect the safety of passengers and crew.
It’s recommended that ferry passengers visiting any indoor spaces wear a mask. Passengers are also asked to limit their movements around the vessel, maintain physical distancing and respect posted occupancy limits.
The 35 minute ferry crossing between Kootenay Bay (east) and Balfour (west) is the longest scenic free ferry crossing in the world. Operated by the Ministry of Highways, the Osprey 2000 runs year round and the smaller Balfour ( boat not place) in summer months. Foot passengers with masks can walk on at any sailing to enjoy the lake cruise. Bus Schedule from Nelson
