C-Spa to be Introduced on BC Ferries

Starting in mid-May 2010, BC Ferries will be offering a lot more than just gorgeous scenery as guests travelling on the Spirit of British Columbia and the Spirit of Vancouver Island vessels will have the chance to experience heavenly pampering on the high seas.

BC Ferries has partnered with C Spa to offer visitors and weary business travelers alike manicures, pedicures and chair massages. Offered Thursday through Monday on the 7:00 am, 9:00 am, 11:00 am and 1:00 pm sailings from both Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay, the spa services will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Prices for the services are $30 CDN / $29 USD for a manicure, $40 CDN / $39 USD for a pedicure, $20 CDN / $19.50 USD for a 15-minute chair massage and $65 CDN / $63 USD for the C-Mani-Pedi.

The new C Spa will be on Deck 6 of the Spirit vessels in one of the staterooms found on board. To book an appointment for a C Spa service, representatives will be available at the tour operator’s desk on Deck 5 at the beginning of each sailing on which these services are available. BC Ferries celebrates their 50th anniversary in 2010. Since its inception in 1960, with two vessels and two terminals, the operation has grown into one of the largest, most sophisticated ferry transportation systems in the world.
