“Easy to ride”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We cut out a lot of driving going from Kingston to Edmonds to be in north Seattle. The fare was about $13 for 2 and a car, the ride was thirty minutes. It was very easy quick and efficient. The ferry itself was practically empty but lots of cars.

“Very clean”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Was impressed with how clean it was kept. With as many people as they shuttle through I thought it was very clean.

“Gorgeous views - make sure you bring a jacket”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We took the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island in mid-May. It was actually quite breezy and cool, which made the covered deck a real plus. Eventually we went inside and did our views through the extensive windows. You can get a cup of great coffee and excellent baked goods (they use a local bakery) for the trip. You can take your car over, but you want to get in line for that at least thirty minutes early to make sure you get on - the ferries are double decker so there is plenty of room but these ferries are used for commuters as well so they are very busy early in the day during the week during commute times.

“Great day trip idea!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Even on a cloudy day it is fun to take a ferry boat ride! Great escape to another place to explore and you don't necessarily need a car, depending on which route you take. Great scenic views and sometimes you see some wildlife. Well worth the money..

“Great Way to See the Seattle Skyline”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Very convenient and cheaper way to see the harbor and skyline than taking a harbor cruise. Snack bar and restrooms are on-board and you can take your car to explore the area.
