Our afternoon speaker was Captain Brockhausen from BC Ferries. He shared his knowledge of how our newest ferries are constructed, plans for new ferries as well as some historical BC ferries photos. Captain Brockhausen, whose wife is also a BC ferry captain on the Spirit ferries, also spoke about the steps that recreational vessels should take in the presence of the ferries. His final topic was about research that BC Ferries is doing on the effect of ferry underwater noise and whales.
