Problem: The seasonal service Bella Coola-Port Hardy could not be operated after the planned ferry, NORTHERN SEA WOLF, formerly the Greek ferry AQUA SPIRIT, was still being upgraded in Vctoria.

Result: loss of tourists

Solution: BC Ferries brought in the NORTHERN ADVENTURE, which is normally used for Inside Passage and Haidi Gwaii service. The ferry started to sail to Bella Coola on 16 September and ends on 11 October.
