SEATTLE – Washington State Ferries’ peak season begins Wednesday, May 1, with an additional 25 percent surcharge applied to full fare vehicle/driver tickets (35 percent on the Anacortes/San Juan Islands routes). Summer parking rates at Anacortes will also go into effect on May 1.

Peak-season rates are unchanged from 2012. The surcharge does not affect passenger fares or frequent user multi-ride fares.

Fare examples for standard-size vehicles (14 feet long to less than 22 feet long):

Anacortes/Friday Harbor
round trip                                      $42.55                         $57.35
