WSF: Potential problems during 4th Fourth of July Holiday Week

There are potential service impacts to the upcoming Fourth of July holiday travel period as Washington State Ferries repairs the Suquamish, which has damage from a crab pot line. The Suquamish is a 144-vehicle vessel that WSF planned to swap with the 144-vehicle Tokitae on the Mukilteo/Clinton route for the Fourth of July holiday week.

The Tokitae has to come out of service on Sunday, June 30 for its federally mandated five-year drydocking. 

If the Suquamish is not returned to service by the start of next week and we need to take the Tokitae out of service by Sunday, June 30, we will need to move vessels around. With only smaller vessels available, this may result in longer wait times and service impacts over the busy holiday travel period. 

WSF will send updates as they learn if the Suquamish can be returned to service before the holiday week begins. For more frequent updates, follow this post on X
