Change in Ferry Reservations
Posted October 8, 2021 at 5:36 am by Tim Dustrude
This just in from Washington State Ferries…
Washington State Ferries will reduce the total number of reservations available during the two-week and two-day releases for the rest of the current season beginning Friday, Oct. 8.
Starting Friday, only 20% of a sailing’s total capacity will open for each release rather than the usual 30%. The adjustment is meant to preserve capacity on existing sailings while also lowering the number of affected customers during service disruptions that cancel sailings. This change will increase reliability and ensure customers with reservations are able to be accommodated when vessels go out of service.
WSF will continue to monitor the situation and attempt to provide as much service as possible as we navigate the effects of the pandemic and global labor shortages. However, we do anticipate continued service disruptions and reduced service on many routes, necessitating this change to reservations. Customers can stay up-to-date on service changes through rider alerts as well as checking our website and social media accounts.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to navigate this difficult time.
The safety of our customers and crew is WSF’s top priority. All traveling customers are required to wear face coverings inside terminals and vessels in compliance with the latest CDC guidelines. However, passengers can remove their masks while outdoors on the sun deck, car deck areas of the vessel, outside waiting areas at terminals and other outdoor locations. Please remember to mask up upon reentering interior areas of boats and terminals.
