WSF Fourth of July Holiday Service

Customers should be prepared if their travels this holiday weekend include riding aboard a ferry. Some routes will be sailing on their holiday sailing schedules on Independence Day, July 4th. Customers can note specific holiday sailings as they are marked on the timetables for each route.

However, all customers should be prepared for longer waits at the terminal no matter the route due to increased traffic for the Fourth of July holiday. Passengers should consider giving themselves extra travel time to get to the terminal and through the tollbooth.

Please also remember that all illegal fireworks are not allowed on any ferry. This includes missile-type rockets, bottle rockets, M-80s, firecrackers, and any homemade or altered fireworks.
