Last October, I had used WSF to get to Bainbridge Island from Seattle and I had aslo used their Port Townsend to Coupeville run (Whidbey Island).

8$ for a roundtrip! It is great. You get to see the skyline of Seattle and can enjoy the trip across the water. Perfect for a day with good weather.

We cross on the ferry to see family, go shopping and see the sights. It is definately a must to get the best pictures. Grab some lunch and hop a ride on the ferry even just to ride it back and forth- afterall, it's a free ride going back to Seattle. Visit the top deck if it's open.

My family had a great outing to the San Juan Islands with our friends lovely views saw a whale. No wait if you walk on car lines can be long and may require a reservation.

A great way to get to the Kitsap Peninsula without the long drive. Give yourself at least 30 minute to arrive at the dock prior to the next sailing.Summer time can mean long lines on the weekends.

Hadn't been on any ferry in quite awhile, took one from Seattle to Bremerton and had a blast!! We will continue to use the ferries to show visitors the beauty of Washington!

Every time I get on the ferry, it feels like a vacation. Traffic, lines, nothing matters once aboard. The staff is professional and helpful.
