Wash­ing­ton State Fer­ries is tem­porar­i­ly reduc­ing ser­vice on the Anacortes/San Juan Islands route begin­ning Fri­day, April 10, due to the M/V Samish being out of ser­vice due to need­ed rud­der repairs.

Until fur­ther notice, the route will oper­ate on a three-boat sched­ule instead of its usu­al four-boat ser­vice. Reser­va­tions will also be sus­pend­ed through April 25. How­ev­er, all pas­sen­gers seek­ing to trav­el should be able to do so with­out reser­va­tions due to declines in rid­er­ship increas­ing the amount of avail­able stand­by space.

These ser­vice changes will allow us time to repair the ves­sel while also ensur­ing that we are pro­vid­ing an appro­pri­ate lev­el of ser­vice based on pas­sen­ger demand, crew avail­abil­i­ty, and state and fed­er­al guide­lines for respond­ing to COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and under­stand­ing while we work to main­tain our fleet.
