Ana/SJs/Sid - Service to Sidney, B.C. Delayed Until 2022

WSF will delay the resumption of service to Sidney, British Columbia until 2022 due to the uncertainty of the reopening of the maritime border between the United States and Canada, along with continued significant crewing and vessel availability challenges.

Adding international service at this time would further stress already strained domestic service that’s affecting Washingtonians still navigating post-COVID travel.

We look forward to taking customers to the Canadian Islands again as soon as we are able.

Faunt/Va/SW - SW/Faunt Passengers Change Boats Friday Nights

All customers on the 9:30 p.m. sailing from Southworth to Fauntleroy will switch to a different vessel when they arrive in Vashon Island Friday evenings.

  • Walk-on passengers will exit the vessel they arrived on and briefly wait at the Vashon terminal before re-boarding their new vessel.
  • Passengers driving aboard will be directed off the boat by terminal staff and repositioned before boarding the new boat.

Once aboard, crews will then load all Fauntleroy-bound Vashon passengers before departing to West Seattle.

This adjustment allows crews more time to perform needed maintenance for the three boats assigned to the route to better avoid service disruptions.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we work to maintain our fleet.
