Used the ferry to visit Bainbridge Island; very comfortable and relaxing. When you return to Seattle, be ready for "The Hill"

Transportainment Folks! No driving, pretty views and the ferry takes you where you want to be in relative comfort. Plus they sell beer, chowder and popcorn on board!

Inexpensive way to enjoy a boat ride and see the city from the water. We ferried to Bainbridge Island and just got off the ferry and re-boarded to come back.

A 35 minute trip across to Bainbridge island from Pier 52 was a treat!! Marvellous views of Seattles skyline and Mt Ranier( if it's clear) The island was lovely , nice to walk around and some lovely shops, especially Mora ice cream !!!

What a unique way to travel! If you miss one ferry, there's a quite adequate bar that plays solid gold rock and serves up splits of Prosecco for a great price. Ship ahoy!

We took the ferry to Bainbridge and to Whidbey. It is fun to ride. Ran on time, efficient. Have seen long lines at times but we didn't experience much wait. Spotted some dolphin on one ride.

I'm not sure about the summer, but there are quite a few times available throughout the day. We walked right up and bought tickets. Hope this helps!

What's the most scenic route/most likely to encounter wildlife? I'd like to experience the "local" transport, rather than go on a cruise.

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
