Sea/Brem - Reminder: Suquamish Has Replaced Walla Walla For Next Few Weeks

The smaller Suquamish has replaced the Walla Walla on the Seattle/Bremerton route for a few weeks due to needed maintenance and a shortage of boats throughout the fleet. The 144-vehicle Suquamish is scheduled to fill in for the 188-vehicle Walla Walla from Monday, Jan. 23 through Sunday, Feb. 19 while the Walla Walla undergoes its federally required inspection and maintenance. Based on recent ridership statistics, the Suquamish should be able to accommodate all traffic on most sailings. However, customers looking to travel in vehicles may want to plan ahead and give themselves extra time, particularly for the 6:20 a.m. sailing from Bremerton to Seattle.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. WSF will continue to send additional updates. Customers can check the online schedule for more information on scheduled sailings and also view the real-time travel map for live boat location information.
