Faunt/Va/SW & PD/Tahl - Vashon Island Low Tides for June 2022

Reminder:

Trucks with a ground clearance of less than 14" should not travel to/from the north end of Vashon or Point Defiance during the following dates/times:

  • June 28, 2022  9:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.  -1.8
  • June 29, 2022  10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  -1.8
  • June 30, 2022  11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  -1.8

At low tides these loading ramps create a steep slope where the hinge at the top causes an extreme angle for trucks or RVs with a low ground clearance. Waiting for a higher tide allows for this angle to lessen at the bridge seat (top). This allows for safer clearances for vehicles low to the ground and keeps them from scraping or hanging up at these locations.

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. For additional travel information regarding COVID-19, visit the COVID-19 Travel Updates webpage.
