**IMPORTANT*** 2016 FERRY RESERVATIONS ARE IN EFFECT!
Reservations for the spring and summer schedules are currently available through September 17.
On April 12, the first release of reservation space became available for summer travel in the San Juan Islands. Some popular sailings may appear full but more space will open up closer to the sailing date:
The first 30% of reservable space on the Anacortes/San Juan Island route is released 2 months prior to the schedule start date. (All tall space is released within the 1st tier). An additional 30% of vessel space is released at 7:00am 2 weeks before each sailing date, and then the final 30% is released at 7:00am 2 days before each sailing date.
No reservation? Some standby space is always available on sailings when drivers don’t use their reservations or travel at a different time. While you may not always get on the sailing of your choice, traveling standby is an option when you need to travel at the last minute or can’t make a reservation.
Reservations for the fall sailing scheudule (September 18, 2016 - January 7, 2017) will be available on July 18.
