I have a mixed review. The fee taker was very nice and helpful and accurate. However, our other party in a different line was charged 2x for their vehicle and had to deal with getting that corrected. Not really knowing how the ferries work, we...More

We made reservations online for our ferry to Coupeville. Our reservations were for the last trip which was 8:30 pm. There is construction on the Main Street of Port Townsend which makes things a little confusing. When you enter town you are advised to take...More

There are earlier comments about the service and mishandling of reservations. We had no such problems. We made our Rez online and purchased our tickets at the same time. Arriving 40 minutes ahead as requested, the kiosk was helpful and patient with our questions. Loading...More

Tonight, we had the treat of both ferries the Kennewick and Salish both docking at once (Kennewick was done for the day). Beautiful and peaceful dock and view.

The actual ferry trip was fine but their record keeping is spoty and they may charge you a no show fee in addition to the regular fair even if you show up on time and hand them your reservation form. If you pay in cash,...More

The ferry between Coupeville and Port Townsend is, well a ferry. It is drive or walk on and off. Unlike the San Juan Island routes you pay both ways. We called "511" yesterday and made reservations. Many didn't and, though the mid-week morning ride to...More

We booked the ferry a few weeks before we arrived. We arrived too early for our scheduled time and they were able to fit us on an earlier ferry. The experience was very easy and everything is well marked. The ride was pretty and we...More

Everything is clearly marked and easy to walk on and off as a walk-on. Currently there is a lot of construction on the main street, and it's very dusty and noisy. But - some day - it'll be all nicely done.

Cost $12.80 to ferry a car across. Thirty minute ride was smooth and without incident. Easy to get on and off. Boat is clean and modern, crew is efficient and knowledgeable.
