BC Ferries has cancelled sailings for a second day as one of its ships remains out of commission.

Four sailings between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay were eliminated on Tuesday as a result of the Queen of New Westminster being redeployed while the Queen of Alberni is repaired.

It's led to cancellations of sailings at 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. from Tsawwassen and 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. from Swartz Bay.

On Monday, six sailings were cancelled due to mechanical issues with the Queen of Alberni. The vessel was originally expected to return to service on Tuesday. 

Customers are being advised to check service notices before heading to ferry terminals.
