Take a 35-minute ferry ride from Seattle to Bainbridge Island, locally known as “the boat.” This route is serviced by two massive Washington State Ferry boats, each over 400 feet long and capable of carrying up to 200 cars and 2,500 passengers. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains as you make your way to Bainbridge Island.
If you’re looking for a memorable and picturesque way to explore the Pacific Northwest, I highly recommend taking the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island.

You can board the ferry at the Seattle Ferry Terminal in downtown Seattle, and once onboard, you can find a comfortable seat to relax and take in the stunning views. There’s even an outdoor deck where you can feel the fresh sea breeze on your face and snap some amazing photos.
During the journey, you’ll have plenty of time to admire Seattle’s top attractions, including the Space Needle and the Great Wheel. And if you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of Mount Rainier in the distance.
