No better way to see Seattle! Amazing water views, mountains, and boats. We just took a round trip ferry ride as pedestrians and loved it. There's a cafe on board so grab a cup of coffee and a snack, relax and enjoy!

The ferry ride to and from Bainbridge Island is a smooth, comfortable 35 minutes with great views of the Seattle skyline, Puget Sound and the islands. A great way to travel with your car, on foot, or on your bicycle.

The ferry tour of Lake Union was very enjoyable. The captain provided a narrative explaining the sights, and it was neat to see the shoreline from the lake. The ferry leaves from South Lake Union park, to the left of the museum. Cash only.

I'm not sure if there is a ferry to Victoria. The Washington State DOT website might have information on that.

Think of it like a tour ferry, it doesn't make stops. It only stops where you got on. One price each time you go aboard. Hope that helps.
