The ferry is fast and efficient way to get across to Port Angeles. The ride was smooth and the view of the Olympia mountains was spectacular. My beef is with the staff both on the phone and at the ticket booth. I called the day before to enquire as to leaving the car in the line and walking around town. I was told that would be fine but we needed to be back one hour before sailing. I was then informed that the reservations were filling up and there are very few spaces for unreserved cars. I asked if my reservation fee would be in US dollars and was told yes as they are a US vessel. I used my US credit card for the reservation fee. When I arrived at the terminal in Victoria I went ahead and gave them my US credit card and found out after the transaction went through that the charge is in Canadian funds. I complained that I was told on the phone that fees are US dollars. Ticket gal said no and that she informed me before I gave her my card. She did not..My husband has a Canadian credit card we could have used and saved the foreign exchange fee. Oh and in the end every car I the line reserved and unreserved made the ferry. I am not impressed with the scare tactics which compel you to pay the $11 reservation fee.
Probably will avoid this ferry next time.
