One more time: grab a spot at the SeaBus launch ceremony, now on Wed Dec 23

Trials and testing for the Burrard Pacific Breeze have been extended for another week, so as a result, the first official sailing of the new SeaBus has been moved to next Wednesday, December 23, at 10 a.m.

Unfortunately, this means a few people from the first draw now can’t make it. So now I have three spots on the SeaBus launch to give away. (The SeaBus will go into service immediately after the launch ceremony, btw!)

To enter, please send an email to thebuzzer@translink.bc.ca by Friday, December 18 at 12 noon with the following info:

  • make your subject line “SeaBus contest”
  • include your name and phone number (so I can contact you quickly!)
  • include the answer to this skill-testing question: 12 * 19 + 31 – 26

Key items to keep in mind:

  • One entry per person!
  • If you enter, you have to come to the launch – you can’t give your spot to anyone else.
  • No entries from employees of TransLink or its family of companies.
  • The event will start at Waterfront Station on Wednesday, Dec. 23 at 10 a.m., so you must be able to make it there in time.
  • This draw is only open to those in Canada.

Again, I’ll randomly draw three names from everyone who gets the correct answer and contact you on Friday. (All entries will be deleted after the draw is over — I won’t keep your personal info for anything.)

    I went to the Waterfront terminal a few times in recent weeks only to discover the Breeze wasn’t running. Is there a way I can see what vessel is sailing before spending an hour getting to the station to see it’s not available? I was really dissappointed to find the Breeze wasn’t running New Years Eve.

    Calling Translink Customer service wasn’t any help and I understand the Waterfront Station couldn’t release their office number.

    Hey ;-),

    I asked SeaBus and here’s what I’ve been told.

    This week the Breeze does not have a fixed “in service” schedule as we have some more training for our staff scheduled on it. For the week of the Jan. 11th the Breeze is expected to be in service from 0600 to 1930.

    That makes sense, because I was waiting for the Burrard Breeze yesterday but the only one working was the Burrard Otter.:(
