Traveling on ferries in the San Juans this holiday weekend? Here are some suggestions from WSF.
Tips for travelers:
- We encourage drive-up vehicles for people not able to get a reservation. In addition to our reserved vehicles, on average we are able to load 20-30 drive-up vehicles on each sailing due to the 10% standby + reservation holders who don’t show for their reserved sailing.
- We ask that reservation holders arrive at least 45 minutes prior to their sailing during the expected heavy traffic for the 4th of July weekend. Customers arriving less than 30 minutes may forfeit their reservation and be placed in the standby lane.
- Reservation holders who arrive at the terminal for a different sailing than the one they reserved will have their reservation redeemed and they will be staged in the standby lane. We will not be able to guarantee them a space on the sailing they originally reserved.
