Yowza.

Downtown Seattle to Bainbridge Island
40-45 Minute Ferry Ride

Fauntleroy (West Seattle) to Vashon Island
20 Minute Ferry Ride
Vashon is the cutest island on the block. If you're not headed to the Sheep Dog Classic (which obviously, you should check out), go visit the Point Robinson Light House!

Edmonds to Kingston
30 Minute Ferry Ride
If you are trying to get out to the Olympic Peninsula, this ferry ride is the best way to do so! Stop along Kingston's charming main street and visit their shops, pubs, and restaurants.

Mukilteo to Whidbey Island
