A ferry ride is a relaxing and scenic way to get to Lynnwood and visit the Puget Sound’s many island communities!
Walk on the ferry and plan to stroll through the quaint waterfront towns or bring your bicycle for a scenic ride through the countryside. Of course, you can always drive aboard and tour the island communities further inland. However you choose to explore, the Washington State Ferry System puts you in touch with all the scenic beauty the Puget Sound offers.
Washington State Ferries is the largest ferry system in the United States, serving eight counties within Washington and the Province of British Columbia in Canada. Ferries provide service to Canada, the San Juan Islands, Vashon, and the Kitsap Peninsula. The system has 10 routes and 20 terminals that are served by 28 vessels. Edmonds and Mukilteo both have ferry docks within a few minutes of Lynnwood. The Seattle ferry terminal is located on Pier 52 on the Seattle waterfront.
From Edmonds, just west of Lynnwood, you can take a 30-minute ride across the Puget Sound to Kingston, a delightful waterfront community. Walk on fares are $7.70 per adult, a vehicle and driver are $13.55 during the winter, $16.40 during the peak season. Ferries are very popular in the summertime, so be prepared to get to the terminal early. You may also make reservations up to one month or 2 hours ahead of sailing time.
