Arrived promptly at 8.00am for the 9.30am ferry. We were the 30th car in line. The ferry was 30 mins. late. After waiting in line for 2hrs we failed to get on, as did four cars and a truck in front of us.

AND we will have to pay a $10 no-show fee because it was too late to cancel our returning reservation on the 8.30pm this evening.

Under the circumstances that $10 fee really rankles, meanwhile the Sidney ferry is undoubtedly running greatly below capacity and we still cannot make a reservation to go off-island.

Just a suggestion regarding the No Show Fee: Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to login to your reservation account and change your reservation to another day to avoid the No Show for the day.

We need priority boarding for residents. Also, separate commercial traffic.
How about a San Juan County Ferry System? Can you say higher taxes. Maybe it would be worth it
