More than 700K ferries customers will dash through the Sound over Christmas week

People driving vehicles onto vessels should plan for long wait times

SEATTLE – Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but a ferry ride is so delightful – especially for those who plan ahead, avoiding the busiest travel times Christmas week.

More than 700,000 people are expected aboard Washington State Ferries between Friday, Dec. 20 and Monday, Dec. 30. Drive-on customers should plan for long wait times as many travelers head to or from their holiday getaways. Delays may be longest on the Edmonds/Kingston route, where a smaller-than-normal vessel is in service.
