    Ask for a round trip ticket to make your return hassle-free. There are public restroom facilities at the terminal if you arrive early for the ferry.

    The veal tastes like dog park and salt water.

    Avoid ferries the night before Thanksgiving! The line was backed up all the way to the PCC. Tried again on the 7:15 Thanksgiving morning and it was WAY more reasonable...

    They don't sell passenger tickets on the Kingston side, only in Edmonds (which means a free ride from Kingston to Edmonds unless you need to go back!)

    If you're in the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry line stop in for a hot coffee.

    If there is not a line... go ahead and shave a mile of useless driving and turn into the ferry turnstiles from Dayton St., ignoring the sign
