WSDOT Announces Service Changes

Friday, March 07, 2008
Last week WSDOT announced the following upcoming temporary service and capacity adjustments. Complete information on schedules and service is available at: www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/ or by calling 1-888-808-7977.

Seattle/Bremerton The 87-car Tillikum will operate on the Seattle/Bremerton route from Monday, March 10 through Friday, March 14, replacing the 124-car Kitsap while it is out for a week of scheduled maintenance. During this time the 188-car Walla Walla will operate with the Tillikum on Seattle/Bremerton. The Tillikum is slower than the Kitsap, so the Seattle/Bremerton schedule will be adjusted slightly to accommodate the smaller vessel. Both vessels have Wi-Fi service.

Anacortes/San Juan Islands The 34-car Hiyu will replace the 87-car Klahowya on the San Juan Islands inter-island route beginning Monday, March 10. Even though the winter and spring months see less inter-island traffic than in summer, customers should expect some sold out sailings due to the reduced capacity of the Hiyu. The down-sizing is expected to last until mid-May. Anacortes/Sidney, BC International service from Anacortes to Sidney, BC begins on Sunday, March 30. Reservations for spring schedule (March 30 - June 21) are now available on-line or by phone at 206-464-6400 or 1-888-808-7977 (WA and BC only). Reservations should be made at least one day prior to sailing. WSDOT will continue to provide updates on near-term service adjustments before they occur.
