Washington State operates the ferry service as part of the Washington State Department of Transportation. It has ten routes servicing twenty terminals and serves roughly 24 million passengers in 2016. There are currently 22 ferries on the Puget Sound. The largest of the ferries carries 2500 passengers and over 200 vehicles.
Rates on the ferry fluctuate during the summer months as the tourist traffic increases and the rates go up accordingly. Reservations are for vehicles only (walk-on passengers and bicyclists board without reservations)
No reservation? In addition to the 10% of stand-by space on each sailing, more standby space is always available on sailings when drivers don't use their reservations or if they travel at a different time. While you may not always get on the sailing of your choice, traveling standby is an option when you need to travel at the last minute or can't make a reservation.
Please note: Your fare is collected on the day of travel and is not included in the reservation.
