Sidney BC to Anacortes Summer ferry schedual

Does anyone know what times the ferry from Sidney to Anacortes runs in the summer? I can only see the winter and summer schedules right now. I'm planning a trip to Disneyland and need to get from Victoria to Seattle. I'm trying to decide what time to book the flight, and trying to see if we can do it all in one day or if we should go over the day before and fly out in the morning. I've taken the Anacortes ferry and the clipper before, and I prefered the Anacortes ferry because of the price and the fact the kids can get up and move around on the boat. But when we took the Anacortes ferry last May, it only sailed from Sidney once a day at noon.

The summer schedule will not be announced for several months. *Usually* it has not varied much from year to year for the summer Sidney BC run from Anacortes. That 2012 schedule is at www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/pdf/2012Summer.pdf and shows they did a noon and 5:55 pm sailing from Sidney to Anacortes then.

many days there is lots of traffic from North Seattle thru downtown so if i had to be at the airport I'd be more comfortable taking a morning plane unless you have lots of time. Perhaps taking 405 to bypass Seattle might be a good idea.

New ferry schedule is out on March 24.

Play with Google Maps between Sidney and Victoria, and Sea-Tac.

You could take the Coho Ferry to Port Angeles then on to the airport via Tacoma. This route skips the Seattle freeway traffic but you could run into Tacoma traffic.

Depends on time of day re: rush hour traffic and which route appeals to you. You'll have access to express lanes on all, I believe, routes, at some point, if you are driving in the morning traffic.

Editing here: I live on the "eastside" of Seattle, and sometimes that 405 southbound traffic can be as bad as I-5. Generally, however, the express lanes do allow a fairly fast commute to the airport.

Thanks; I should have said "New ferry schedule begins on March 24." Here is the schedule duration: Spring 2013 [Mar 24, 2013 - Jun 15, 2013] Will post a summer schedule, 2012, which will probably be the same for 2013.

What is the 2013 summer sailing schedule? Don't know specific dates, but the 2012 summer began Sunday, June 17 and ended Saturday, Sept. 22.

Here's the 2012 summer schedule; note the additional ferry sailing during the summer months:
