{Vashon Island, WA} Getting There is Half the Fun

We recently got to step back in time to beautiful, peaceful Vashon Island, Washington.  Vashon has something for everyone: fresh fruits and veggies from the local farms, beaches, hiking, boating, art galleries, delicious food, famous coffee, and all the wonderful things that go into island life.

One of our favorite parts of day though? Traveling by ferry boat on this sunny spring day!

Info to Know:

  • Vashon can be reached only by ferry boat (unless of course you take your own boat or private plane) with the main choices being  from the Fauntleroy ferry terminal in West Seattle, WA, the Southworth terminal in Port Orchard, WA, or from Point Defiance in Tacoma, WA. Ferry information: http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/
  • Cyclists find the island “bicycle-friendly”, which allows you to be a “walk-on” ferry passenger with your bike.
  • It’s not quite the same as a ferry boat ride, but another option for access to Vashon is by water-taxi from Downtown Seattle.  Details on times and schedules

  1. I have only recently heard of Vashon Island and it sounds like such a fun place to spend the day. I love any day trip that involves a ferry ride! Certainly looks like your baby is having a grand time! 🙂

  2. I love taking any of the ferries on the west coast. The ones to Victoria are my favorite, but the little ones out of Seattle are certainly still a lot of fun. Sometimes I just ride over and back and never even bother to go see the island. I just want to be out on the water in a boat.

We'd love to hear from you!
