Edmonds to Kingston, (30 Minute ride) frequent runs, easy loading, huge and comfortable lounge upstairs with full amenities. Qucik unloading. Could have used a better direction sign on exiting, to get onto the highway around the Olympic Peninsula, but that's the city, not the ferry.

We so enjoy traveling by ferry around the Pacific Northwest. The ferries are generally on time, clean, and the views are stellar. If you’re thinking about Island hopping, this is an excellent option!
