Ride Every Ferry Boat

 

About three years into my Visit Every City in Washington State project, I decided to include a side project to
Ride Every Ferry Boat in Washington State
.

Most people are aware of the Washington State Ferry Fleet which cross the Puget Sound, but there are several
other county and private ferries that operate around the state. Some connect small islands, while others provide
passage from one city to another on rivers and lakes.

I
am aware that there are several passenger only ferries throughout the state, such as Ocean Shores to Westport,
the Victoria Clipper, and the Lady of the Lake on Lake Chelan. However, because I am traveling the state with my vehicle,
I chose to
ride the ferries that my car would be able to come along with me.
