Tillikum repaired | Ferries resume regular fall service

Submitted by Washington State Ferries.

WSF maintenance teams and vessel crews were able to repair the Tillikum sooner than expected, and the San Juan Islands route will return to its regular Fall sailing schedule with interisland service beginning Tuesday, Oct. 5.

Customers will once again be able to make new reservations for the route. Those with existing reservations should plan on arriving to the terminal in advance for their originally scheduled sailing. Customers are encouraged to take a moment to verify their sailing times and check the schedule, which is available online.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we worked through this service disruption.

The safety of our customers and crew is WSF’s top priority. All traveling customers are required to wear face coverings inside terminals and vessels in compliance with the latest CDC guidelines. However, passengers can remove their masks while outdoors on the sun deck, car deck areas of the vessel, outside waiting areas at terminals and other outdoor locations. Please remember to mask up upon reentering interior areas of boats and terminals.
