    Make sure you roll a $8 per person roundtrip wherever it starts first.

    Great experience, but if you have a car, it's just as quick driving thru Tacoma if you're heading to/from Bremerton - and saves you $20.

    If you are stuck in the car line on a warm sunny day get out of the hot car and take pictures

    Buy fresh Rainier cherries at the Pike Place Market to eat while on the ferry!

    Don't double tap your orcas pass for two, see the ticket window for tickets instead.

    The ramp from the street to the terminal is an optical illusion. Don't be fooled, steeper than it appears

    Fun on a ferry!

    Ride an evening ferry to Bainbridge. On the way back get a nice sunset and night time view of the city skyline.

    Two hour wait... ugh

    Bicyclists are only charged for the trip to Bainbridge Island, but not for the trip to Seattle.

    Colby Moorberg · August 8, 2014
  • Dustin D.

    Make sure you're early for the afternoon ferries, lest you miss it for the crowd!

    Buy your ticket online. Save yourself the long wait.

    I like riding the ferry across the water for a view of the skyline. It's also very fun to catch the ferry to San Juan Islands. In season you'll see orcas. Once there I think you can dig for oysters?

    Katherine M. · June 10, 2014
  • Alex P.

    Please save us all the hassle and figure out how to use the turnstiles.

    The police finally caught the trailer RV driver in what had to be the longest slow speed chase in the Seattle WSF terminal last night!

    Use ORCA card at the turnstiles if you don't need a special discount ticket (Sr. etc.)

    This is a boat that takes cars across Puget Sound.

    Got food poisoning from the subway in the terminal... Never going there again!

    With current construction, if coming from I-90, drive north thru downtown (or take collector/distributor to Madison) then left on Madison and left into ferry line. Waiting on Alaska Way takes forever.

    Care H · July 13, 2013
  • Sandee H.

    Turn OFF your car alarm... The rest of the car deck does NOT need to hear it blaring because you think someone is going to steal your car. We are on a boat crossing ocean water, really it's safe!!!!

    The news stand has a great soft drink and popcorn deal. The best value in the building and perfect for the ride to the other side.

    If you're on the high traffic boat be sure to get here 20-30 min early

    Coffee refills on the ferry in your own cup are a bargain.

    DO NOT connect to boingo while waiting for the ferry! The switching process from the terminal to the ferry doesn't work & will lock u out.

    Either park and ride or pay a nominal $12+ fee to take your vehicle round trip.
