Delays may be longest on the Edmonds/Kingston route, where a smaller-than-normal vessel is in service.
The Saturdays prior to Christmas Day and New Year’s Day are expected to be the busiest.
With Christmas falling on a Tuesday this year, many passengers are also likely to travel on the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday following the holiday.
Check your route’s schedule as some timetables will be on a holiday schedule on Tuesday, Dec. 25, and Tuesday, Jan. 1.
To reduce or eliminate wait times, consider walking on the ferry or taking an early morning or late evening sailing.
