Smooth Trip
Sep 2021
The Washington State Ferry system is well organized, clean and safe. The time schedule fits into almost any schedule on any vacation.

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.

Fun, great way to get around the area. We love riding the ferry and now my daughter does too. Easy to get to, runs all the time, safe and fun way to see more of the city and area as you travel.

Whidbey Island Ferry
Aug 2021
Took ferry from Mukliteo and enjoyed a day on the island. WE didn't know what to do, not big agenda, but learned the ferry to get back sometimes had a 90 minute wait. We didn't do much, visited Langley and went to Penn Cove Taproom, which had excellent beer and an awesome food truck. Had we more time we'd have planned better and gone to Deception Pass

Cheap, wonderful way to tour
Aug 2021
The ferries are large, clean, and walk-on friendly -- and CHEAP. We paid $4.50 pp (senior rate) for a round trip to Bainbridge Island. No reservations required. No line at the ticket counter. And the ferry was no where near even 20% capacity so you never had to be near anyone (inside or out).

And the ferries were VERY punctual. They run each way on kind of an hourly basis, so you can go over when you want, have lunch, walk around, and take a convenient ferry back. It was perfect.

In fact, we enjoyed our experience so much we're looking at other places to go by ferry -- maybe Bremerton?

The Washington State Ferry website is extremely helpful and accurate. The staff on the ferry and at the terminals were friendly and helpful.

Pike Place Market AND a ferry ride through the Puget Sound Islands are "must do"
Aug 2021
Spectacular scenery throughout the Puget Sound. You don't want to miss a ride on the ferry through the islands.
