The Washington State Ferries, both the short and the longer crossings offer a beautiful view of the sea, and if you are lucky you may spot a bobbing sea creature or two. They are a convenient mode of transportation that is totally enjoyable.

We took a ferry (which is very comfortable, with options to sit inside or outside, and a nice cafeteria for the hungry travellers) to Bainbridge island late afternoon, had a nice walk around the island, and took the ferry back during sunset - totally magical experience!

Decided to take a ferry to Bainbridge Island. The ferry itself was so impressive (big and stable). The view is unbeatable. The walk to downtown Winslow was ok. The town of Winslow was ok. My favoriate part was the ferry ride and the view. You pay just once (not both directions) in Seattle.

We took a total of 4 ferries driving around the greater Seattle area and the San Juan Islands. Loved traveling by ferry.

Very reasonable fare for round trip to Bainbridge. The views of the Seattle skyline are spectacular! Ferries left on time and had great concessions on board. We had a great day in Bainbridge!
