Great way to spend a sunny afternoon with kids of all ages. Prices are affordable. Just wish you didnt have to unload and reload for roundtrips.

Used the ferry three times to visit Orcas Island. The online ticketing process was easy and convenient. Even with the recent setback of two ferries being out of service, it still ran smoothly. It's amazing to see a huge trailer full of timber board the...More

My friend and so many others (mostly relay runners) witnessed an Orca whale jumping and playing around while riding the Clinton to Mukilteo ferry last week. Riding a ferry in Seattle is a must. The city has so much to offer but it is always...More

I don't know about the summer. There are several ferries in the system. Crossing over, I had virtually no wait time. However, on the way back, it was not as smooth. The wait time was over an hour, and this was mid May.
