We are coming up on one of the busiest holidays of the year for WSF. If you haven’t made travel plans yet, it’s time. If you plan to walk on a ferry, you need to allow ample time to find parking. Last year there was a point where the lots at the Anacortes Terminal were full. For off-site parking, you can try calling the Port of Anacortes about their lots (360) 293-0694. You can catch the bus near Safeway.
Here is a message from WSF:
Know Before You Go this Fourth of July Weekend
With the Fourth of July just around the corner, drivers should start planning now for heavy holiday traffic on roads and ferries; allow extra travel time and consider traveling at non-peak times.
The Fourth is expected to be the busiest weekend of the year for Washington State Ferries. Extra sailings will be added for several routes. Reservations are strongly recommended for the San Juan Islands, Sidney, BC or Port Townsend/Coupeville. Travelers can also consult the best times to travel tab on the right of each route’s summer schedule listing.
