Severe Weather Schedules for the Ferries
Feb 14, 2021
By WA State Department of Transportation
All routes will be operating on their severe weather schedules through at least the weekend and Monday.
In addition to the severe weather schedule, the following change to the Anacortes/San Juan Islands route will also be in place:

All sailings for the Samish operating in the #1 position are cancelled Saturday and Sunday.

Travelers should plan ahead and check the severe weather schedules online and give themselves plenty of extra time to arrive to the terminal before their desired departure. It may take longer you longer than normal to reach the terminals and depending on weather conditions, and it may take crews longer to load the vessels.

Reservation rules have been relaxed, and customers traveling on reservation routes will not be charged no-show fees should they choose not to travel. Customers can go online to cancel their reservations, but that is not required to avoid being assessed a no-show fee.

WSF’s highly-trained and capable captains, crews, and staff are prepared for any situation. We ask that customers please extend their patience and cooperation to them as delays may occur. WSF will closely monitor the situation and provide updates as necessary. Thank you for your patience.

The safety of our customers and crew is WSF’s top priority. Please remember that all traveling customers are required to wear face coverings inside the terminal, at the tollbooth and aboard the ferry. Please also consider limiting your travel to only the most essential trips while service continues to be constrained by the pandemic.
