Sailings from Colman Dock Return to Regular Schedule January 21

All ferries between Colman Dock, Bainbridge Island and Bremerton will return to the regular winter schedule beginning with the first sailing on Tuesday, Jan. 21. Bainbridge Island boats will operate from slip 1; Bremerton boats will operate from slip 3.

Here are links to the Winter 2020 Sailing Schedules:

We appreciate everyone's understanding as the schedule for these two routes temporarily changed on Jan. 4. This 16-day period allowed our contractor to finish critical work on the north side of the dock.

The work tearing down the remainder of the old terminal continues at the dock; as a result vehicle staging areas for both Bainbridge Island and Bremerton customers will shift slightly - see map below. Please follow the directions of WSF personnel.

Stay in touch and know before you go! Remember, you can always check Vessel Watch, subscribe to route alerts, and download the WSDOT app to get real-time status of your ferry’s location on the route.

New Staging at Colman Dock
