Tips for Ferry Riders
The ferry system is complex, governed by law and the employees work under high stress during the summer months. They do not make the rules, so if you're frustrated by a botched reservation, placement of your vehicle on board, or cancelled or delayed runs, please don't take it out on them.
Once aboard, don't set the alarm on your vehicle. The pitch and vibration of the vessel will set it off.
No pets, other than service dogs and small animals in carriers are allowed on the passenger deck.
Food and beverages may not be available on board except in vending machines on some runs. Check with Washington State Ferries for boats with food service. You may want to consider eating before you board or bring a picnic lunch.
