Guemes Ferry Out of Service
"The Guemes Island Ferry will be out of service all day Thursday, March 13, 2014, for mechanical repairs. Passenger-only service will be available beginning at 6:30 a.m. in the morning. The passenger vessel will operate on the ferry's regular sailing schedule.
It is unknown at this time when the car ferry will be up and running; however, please be prepared for it to be out of service all day Friday as well. What we do know is that there is some pretty extensive damage to the engine's top end.
We will post another notice when we know more. We apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience.
For more information, please call the ferry main office at (360) 293-6433." - Captain Rachel Rowe.
