Please con­tin­ue to lim­it fer­ry trav­el to essen­tial trips.

Despite increas­ing COVID-19 vac­ci­na­tions and low­er case num­bers, the Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol and Pre­ven­tion still rec­om­mends we delay trav­el if possible.

That’s why we con­tin­ue to ask the pub­lic to lim­it rides on our fer­ries to essen­tial pur­pos­es only. If you must ride, be aware that we are still oper­at­ing mod­i­fied sched­ules on most routes because of the pan­dem­ic. We plan to increase ser­vice on our Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth, Anacortes/San Juan Islands and Port Townsend/ Coupeville routes start­ing May 9.

Addi­tion­al­ly, all our crewmem­bers are now eli­gi­ble for the vac­cine and I’m encour­ag­ing them to receive one for the safe­ty of our work­force and our customers.

Even though more and more peo­ple are get­ting vac­ci­nat­ed, fed­er­al law con­tin­ues to require face cov­er­ings every­where on our ves­sels and through­out our terminals.
