We arrive in SEA on Saturday 7/6 and plan to stay downtown that night. We'll leave for Anacortes to Orcas Island on sunday 7/7. A few questions:
1) We can rent a car for the downtown Seattle to Anacortes drive. Or we can take the Shuttle. Any clear winner? Looks like Shuttle has a 6:25 AM bus or a 12:25 PM bus. Boy, do I hate to get up early if I don't have to . . . .
2) Traffic on ferry -- . What's the wait likely to be for people only (no vehicle) to go Anacortes-Orcas on Sunday, 7/7? (Yes, on Sunday of Fourth of July weekend)
3) Since it doesn't look like we can buy tickets for a particular ferry ahead of time, how long is typical for walk ons to wait? (We have kids, so need to plan ahead if we get there at 2pm and probably won't get on the ferry until 8pm.)
Any tips or tricks that will help us?
