The ferry had a few options . We decided to go to bainbidge island. There was a quaint little town you could walk around. The best part was the view of the Seattle skyline upon leaving and returning to the port in Seattle

The ferries seem to be a must do when visiting Seattle. We came in from Port Bainbridge Island to Seattle and this was definitely a cool way to see the city before actually being in the City. The ferries are extremely fast and it saved...More

Since I live on the Olympic Peninsula, the ferry system is a very necessary part of my life. I need to use them to visit my family, the city, etc. They are efficient, clean, and actually somewhat fun.

If you want a great way to see the Seattle skyline from the water without paying for the Argosy cruise, walk on the Seattle to Bainbridge Island ferry from the Coleman Dock. It is a pretty ride over--and you can even easily walk up to...More

Once you are on the islands, the ferry is free. We only had to pay when traveling to and from Seattle. Do not pay for what you do not need.

I don't know about this specific route. If you call the Washington Ferry System, you can talk to a live person. They are very helpful in explaining routes, wait times and prices.
