The Coho ferry to Port Angeles is a much nicer way to get to Washington state than driving. The ship is nothing special and the facitities are only adequate, but the scenery is fantastic and the trip is relaxing and stress free. Enjoyable.

We traveled to Victoria using this method. I would highly recommend. Food is decent, views are spectacular. Arrive early if you want to be in front. We were 2 hours early and not close to front with our car.

The only way to get to and from Victoria and we enjoyed the trip. ferry is very clean and very well organized. the important thing is to get there 90 minutes early as they request as lines are long during season.

We love this ferry and have ridden on it four times. It's an old ship, but it is so well maintained you'd never guess. Buy a glass of wine or champagne and enjoy the ride.

Nice scenery, cramped and out-of-date ship and shipboard amenities. If you grew up in the PNW and recall the old ferries that plied Puget Sound, you will feel right a home. Old boat, tiny cafeteria, very few electrical plugins and no onboard wi-fi. Travel on...More
