Ferry reservations for summer sailings almost here.

Summer Ferry Reservations to/from the San Juan Islands!

Beginning April 24th at 7AM, the first 30% allotment of space will become available to reserve for sailings for the busy summertime in the islands. Reservations will be available for sailings between June 24th through September 29th.

Reservation space is released in 3 tiers:


San Juan Islands 30/30/30 tiered release of space occurs at 7AM 2 months prior to each season start date, then 2 weeks, and then 2 days prior to each sailing date. Reservations for the Summer 2018 sailing schedule will be available for the San Juan Islands beginning April 24, 2018 in the 1st tiered release.

Helpful Hints about ferry reservations in the San Juan Islands:

There’s no charge to reserve your sailing, but a credit/debit card number is required to hold your reservation (there is a no-show charge based on vehicle size)

  • You are not pre-paying for your ticket when you make a reservation, you're simply securing a spot on your desired sailing.
  • Your ferry ticket will still be purchased at the ferry terminal (Anacortes)
  • Reservation holders have priority and limited spaces per sailing are available for drive-up travelers. If you don’t have a reservation, at busy times you may wait multiple sailings for a space.
  • Reservations are easily modified and/or canceled up to the day before your travel reservation.

So now what?

If you are traveling to the San Juan Islands during the summer sailing schedule (June 24-September 29, 2018), we'd encourage you to make reservations well in advance. Visit the Washington State Ferry website by clicking here to make sure you're not spending all your vacation at the ferry terminal!
