If you have a car (or even if you don't, reserve your summer ride in advance online and use the ferries. They get you quickly to some places that would take much longer by car and to others where a car would not get you...More

With one ferry down for repairs car travel in the SJI is quite challenging. If you can adjust your transportation, ditch the car and go by bike or foot you will be better off. No car reservations taken right now during peak season due to...More

A lovely view of the Sound, a cute downtown with good wine tasting. Make sure to stop at Mora for ice cream and Eagle Harbor for some killer red wine

Took a ferry to Bainbridge Island on a beautiful day. What great views of Seattle! The ferry was pretty quick, not jam-packed and efficient loading/unloading. Highly recommend!

Took the ferry back/forth to Bemerton - convenient, price was great and the boat had plenty of space to stretch out, sit or stand on the deck and enjoy the sunshine -- real enjoyed the ferry boat ride!

We recently vacationed in Seattle. We took the ferry over to Bainbridge Island! The ride and visit were some of the best memories we made!

Went to Seattle from Bremerton and no better way to go than the Washington State Ferries. Whether you use the high speed passenger ferry or the more causally paced car/passenger ferry you can't go wrong. Drops you off right near downtown

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.

Anacortes/San Juan will not disappoint. It's 1.5 hours of serene beauty. It's at least a day trip. One can easily spend a week and not tire of the beauty of the San Juan islands. It's best to make reservations via the WSF... More
