Ferry will be shut Thursday, Oct. 26, 2023

Ferry will be shut Thursday, Oct. 26, 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

On Thursday, October 26, starting at 8:30 a.m., the ferry will be shut down for bridge maintenance on the Guemes Island side. During this time, crews will perform annual preventative maintenance and repairs on the bridge span, apron, and wingwalls. The work will be performed during the day to prioritize the safety of our crews and reduce costs associated with after-hours work.

The last sailing before the work begins will be at 8:00 a.m. Passenger-only service can not be provided as the Guemes bridge span and apron will be out of service for the maintenance.
Regular ferry service will resume at 1:00 p.m.

No alternative form of ferry transportation will be provided during this time, including emergencies. Please plan accordingly.
