Took this ferry to visit British Columbia . The ride was about 90 minutes. Very smooth ride and pretty good snacks aboard. You can get out and move around or sit in one of many lounges.

Make sure to make reservations the day before, or sooner, and show up one hour early on the US side and 1.5 hours prior to departure, on Canadian side . Enjoyed our trip both ways. Nice staff and customs agents.

My wife and I walked on after parking in port Angeles. The cost is reasonable but I was expecting a nicer ferry. I’m used to Seattle ferry to Bainbridge. Not that fancy but much nicer in terms of comfort. Time for an update!!

We had not taken the Black Ball in 30 years, but it was just as we remembered. The BC ferries are the largest and smoothest. The WA state ferries are the most scenic. The Black Ball requires that everyone leave the car deck. There is...More
