The best $9.50 I spent!
Sep 2021 • Solo
It feels weird writing a review for public transportation, but it was great. A friend told me to get out in the water and I’m so glad I did. The views, the fresh air - totally phenomenal. It was a clear day and I got a breathtaking view of Mt Rainier. I walked around Bainbridge on a Friday evening and it was really quiet although there were several food and drink options…but mostly sleepy. I had caught the ferry to try to see the sunset and then did a night return to see the city lights. I’d do this again and again. And I’d like to explore other islands too next time.

Ferry Ride to Bainbridge Island
Sep 2021
The Washington Ferry System is outstanding. Very punctual and efficient. Took the ferry to Bainbridge Island and really enjoyed the ride and reasonable fare. View of downtown Seattle skyline at night on trip back was spectacular!

Fun trip to Bainbridge
Sep 2021
On a hot day, nothing is nicer than a cool ferry ride to Bainbridge Island. Very affordable, with plenty of seating and good people-watching.

Best way to visit Bainbridge Island. Ferry ride was enjoyable and free to move about to enjoy all the sights going and coming back.

Poor customer service for paying customers
Sep 2021 • Couples
The ferry reduced down to one ferry and then refused paying customers the ability to use the bathroom because they were “at capacity”. I had a ticket I had paid for and they refused me the ability to use the restroom. I have taken the ferry many times but it seems crazy they wouldn’t let paying customers use the PUBLIC restrooms!! Get it together. This is ridiculous.

Saving time from Olympic Park back to Seattle
Sep 2021
After driving over 2,000 miles and visiting the Olympic National Park, it was a blessing to find out about the ferries at Edmond. I had checked the information prior to our arrival and there is really no guarantee that you can get on once you get there. You may have to wait. Well, for us it was perfect timing. Our wait was less then ten minutes and it was a beautiful ride to Seattle. This is really a well organized operation. I had gone to use the rest room and could not feel the ferry pulling away from the dock. For seniors there is no charge and only $16 for your car. You can't beat that with a stick. It was also amazing how quick we could get to interstate 5 from the dock. So for those who are looking to save time on your travels, thanking this Ferry to Seattle is beyond work it. I would just say, once you make that turn off for Edmond it seems forever to get their, Sit back and relax, there is light at the end of the tunnel. If any works for this ferry read the reviews, I want to thank you for such a well run business.

Great Way to Get Around
Sep 2021
We used there ferry to travel to Bainbridge Island and the experience was budget friendly and efficiently run. The ride itself was a calm one and we chose to stay in our cars due to the winds one would experience getting to a passenger area after the ferry has started to move. Highly recommend this service.

Great, Peaceful Experience
Sep 2021
We took the ferry from Seattle to Bremerton and back and were very happy with the experience. I get very seasick and had zero issues on either trip- very smooth. The ferry was spacious and I was able to access the outside, both in the front and rear of the ship.

A great trip for a cheap price
Sep 2021
Took the Bremerton ferry round trip in the early evening as a foot passenger. As I qualified for the senior rate one of the best values in sightseeing in the Seattle area. Plenty of room, seating and a beautiful lit up skyline on the return trip for a few dollars round trip. Lots of beautiful scenery plus a stunning view of Mount Rainier if the weather permits. A must for the budget traveler.
