Youth, senior, or persons with disabilities should purchase their fare at the tollbooth and provide proof of age or disability to receive the discounted fare. Vehicles over 21 feet, 11 inches should also plan on purchasing their fare at the terminal as should vehicles 7 feet, 2 inches in height or vehicles that are over 8.5 feet in width.

Ticket Details

Our vehicle fares are based on a vehicle's length, height, and width, as well as the distance you will be traveling on board our ferry. There are two standard vehicle categories:

  1. Under 14 feet - for smaller vehicles under 168 inches in length.
  2. Under 22 feet - for most regular size vehicles

* Please check your owners manual for the overall vehicle length. The point of verification is at the terminal when the ticket is attempted to be redeemed.

All tickets are good for 90 days and are non-refundable.

The Port Townsend/Coupeville route is unique, offering one-way passenger fares. On all other routes, passenger tickets are round trip. Vehicle tickets are usually purchased both ways, except for the San Juan Islands and Vashon Island routes which are round trip.

Reservations are recommended for trips between Port  Townsend/Coupeville and Anacortes/San Juan Islands. Please visit Vehicle Reservations  to reserve your spot.

Monthly passenger passes are available for the calendar month (the first day of the month to the last), are good for 31 round trips, and the discount (20% or higher) is based on how often you ride, not age. The monthly pass is for a single user only, and cannot be used for multiple fares on one sailing. Passengers traveling every day get the largest discount with this pass.   There is no monthly pass for vehicles fares.
