Managing the transportation system of the beautiful Washington state. Drive safely out there, and please don't check in while driving.
There is an excellent grocery store with hot breakfast sandwiches open early if you are getting one of the first ferries.
Get here more than 2 hours early on holiday weekend. Got here on Memorial Day at 9:45am and couldn't get on 12pm ferry- have to wait until the 3:15pm one. No fun!!!
If you're visiting from October through April, you can drive up for a Sunday return ferry 30 minutes early and still get on it. Another win for the off-season!
On a Sunday, you need to get to the ferry TWO hours in advance. No one will tell you this, so it's important information to make a note of now!!!
Come early. Ferry broke down and now I'm stuck waiting another 4 hours for the next ferry :(
In the summer, it's best to arrive 2 hours before the ferry you want is scheduled to leave. Otherwise, you'll be be stuck on a later ferry, and the waiting stinks.
Say hello to the bunny rabbits.
Get here early in the summer fills up fast
On Sundays get in line 2+ hours before you departure time.
You need to arrive at least to hours in advance to catch the 5:30 ferry on Sundays
No concessions on the WS Ferries for 12 years now. "Didn't pencil" says WSF staffer.
The little store serves hot food and fresh coffee if you are here wicked early. Watch out for the bacon though...a bit greasy...left me with an upset stomach.
Deixe o carro cedo na fila e vá ver as lojinhas!
