This is the only ferry option between Vancouver Island and the Olympic Peninsula. It is also the shortest way to visit Victoria, BC, from Seattle if you want to drive so you have the option to explore more of the island outside of Victoria. (The Victoria Clipper is quicker for just walking on from Seattle.) So there is no competition for better service or amenities, which are at the bare minimum for an expensive 90 minute crossing and the significant wait time required prior to boarding. Though it's easy to go online and make reservations to ensure you have space on the ferry, there are no clear directions or explanations for all the protocol which is needed for both an international crossing with the proper documentation as well as ferry boarding with or without a reservation. There is a significant wait time of 90 minutes on the Victoria side in an enclosed space that you are not allowed to leave, without any amenities except a toilet. The free WiFi didn’t work.
