In partnership with BC Ferries and Balfe Somers Wealth Management of RBC Dominion Securities, PRISMA presents the Symphony Cruise.


Welcome to our Vancouver Island neighbours who are crossing the Salish Sea today.  Thank you for joining us for PRISMA’s Symphony Cruise Matinée presenting:

“Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes”  

1:30 PM – Evergreen Theatre



You boarded the 10:05 sailing out of Little River (Comox) and will be arriving at Westview (Powell River) Terminal at 11:30.


Please come and see PRISMA volunteers stationed on board in the back lounge, if you have questions. We have maps available of 

Marine Avenue (great shopping and dining options) and PRISMA souvenir programs.


*Please be patient with boarding buses. We will bring you to the concert on time.



If you are attending lunch with us at the Evergreen Theatre, please board one of two school buses waiting for you at the terminal so we can get you to lunch. If you have mobility issues you will be directed to a city bus. Lunch starts at noon. If you are not on the first load, buses will return to pick you up.

If you choose to dine and walk on Marine Ave: Please board one of the other two city busses. These buses will drop you along Marine Ave at the restaurant where you want to dine. To get to the complex after your lunch please wait at any one of the bus stops along the side of the street away from the water. PRISMA busses will circle Marine Ave three times between 12:30 and 1 pm to pick you up and take you to the concert.

If you are heading straight up to the theatre, but not having lunch with us: Please wait until those going to lunch have boarded. We will have buses to take you to the theatre in plenty of time too.


If you have not pre-ordered the lunch option at the venue, there are some fine establishments on Marine Avenue which will be open to serve you. Please call ahead to see if there is room.
