Anyone wanting to grab a quick beer, wine or cider in BC Ferries’ Coastal Cafes will soon be in luck.
The company announced it would begin offering alcoholic beverages “in the coming months” at the Coastal Cafes on vessels sailing between Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island.
That includes sailings between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay, Tsawwassen and Duke Point and Horseshoe Bay and Departure Bay.
BC Ferries says the move comes after it introduced wine and beer to the Pacific Buffet more than two years ago “with no issues.” The company has received approval in principle for liquor licenses in the cafes subject to an inspector’s review.
“BC Ferries continually seeks ways to enhance and add value to our customers’ experience and offering alcoholic beverages in select Coastal Cafes is in response to customer feedback,” the company said.
Beverages will only be able to be purchased with a meal by people 19 and older, and can only be offered by staff who have their Serving It Right certification. Drinks will also only be served “in limited quantities,” BC Ferries said.
Alcohol will be available for purchase in Coastal Cafes by the end of summer, BC Ferries said.
