This ferry (downtown Victoria to Port Angeles) is relatively stress free. The ferry could use some more food options but otherwise it's a pleasant journey.

There are multiple lots in Port Angeles within two blocks of the ferry, ranging in price from $10-$15 per calendar day. It's a very easy day trip if you park in one of those lots and walk on the ferry.
