WSF has discovered a problem with an emergency shutdown device on the M/V Klahowya’s engine, and all inter-island sailings have been cancelled until further notice. Crews have dispatched to repair the vessel, but inter-island travel will be extremely limited for the remainder of the service day. We apologize for the inconvenience. Note: Inter-island service is reflected by the light blue background on the printed schedule.
To help accommodate travel between islands, WSF has coordinated several additional sailings with other vessels on this route:
ELWHA: Eastbound from Friday Harbor – There will be an additional 2:40 pm sailing from Orcas Island, 2:50 pmfrom Shaw and 3:20 pm from Lopez, arriving in Anacortes at 4:00 pm (estimated one hour behind schedule.)
Additionally, the 6:30 pm from Friday Harbor will make extra stops: 7:15 pm from Orcas, 7:30 pm from Shaw and7:50 pm from Lopez, arriving in Anacortes at 8:35 pm (estimated one hour behind schedule.)
YAKIMA: Westbound from Anacortes – Yakima will leave Anacortes at 5:10 pm, making extra stops at Shaw, Orcas and Friday Harbor. Additional stops will occur at 5:50 pm from Lopez, 6:10 pm from Shaw and 6:30 pm from Orcas, arriving in Friday Harbor at 7:10 pm.
Reservation holders will be able to sail on their reserved sailings, though some boats may be late due to making extra inter-island stops. Reservations were relaxed as a precaution. No penalty for no-shows. We will send notification as necessary.
Passengers will be taken on a first come, first served basis, and there might not be space. Arrive early for the added sailings. Walk on space available on all sailings.
