After my time on the Olympic Peninsula, I made my way slowly to Lummi Island to visit friends. On the way, I spent a day on Whidbey Island.
Getting to Whidbey Island
In order to reach Whidbey Island from the Olympic Peninsula, I took the Port Townsend-Coupeville Ferry. Having only ridden the Washington ferry system one time ten years ago, I popped online for a refresher.
Fortunately, I did. Apparently, this is an extremely popular ferry route and reservations are recommended. I had to get the 6:30am ferry because the others were sold out! It costs around $15 for a car and person which is paid at the toll booth.
The ferry was enormous! Somehow, I lucked out and got to park on the very front next to a semi-truck. I enjoyed a lovely view on calm seas as we spent 30 minutes crossing the Puget Sound.EXPLORE MORE!
