Washington State Ferries: Anacortes to Sidney boat back on route
The spring sailing schedule for Washington State Ferries begins Sunday, March 27. Welcome news for both Skagit County in Washington and Vancouver Island, as the international route between Anacortes, WA and Sidney, BC begins again today.
There's one round-trip sailing per day between Anacortes and Sidney. It departs Anacortes at 8:30 AM; stops in Friday Harbor and departs at 9:55 AM; arrives in Sidney at 11:10 AM. The Vancouver Island departures leave Sidney at 12:05 PM; stops in Friday Harbor, departing at 1:55 PM; arrives in Anacortes at 3 PM. To make reservations, log onto www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries.
Businesses in Anacortes are concerned about the state cutting back the nine-month season of the Anacortes-Sidney ferry to seven months. See a video report on KING-5 about the proposal. Vancouver Island is also keeping tabs on the situation, especially now that the Victoria Express is no longer sailing between Port Angeles, WA and Victoria, BC.
The spring sailing schedule is in effect through June 18, 2011.
