Expect ferry congestion over holiday weekend

During the Memorial Day weekend, ferry passengers are urged to double check sailing schedules and prepare for the possibility of long waits if driving a vehicle on board.

Most routes will operate on timetables different from Memorial Day weekends prior to COVID-19 for multiple reasons: One of WSF’s largest ferries is unavailable due to a fire and subsequent investigation and repair, continued coronavirus-related crewing challenges, as well as a few ongoing service reductions in place since the start of the pandemic.

The Clinton-Mukilteo route will be operating with one smaller vessel and the Coupeville-Port Townsend route still has one-boat service instead of two.
