The Blake Island Fast Ferry has returned! View the modified schedule here.


While we are encouraged by the progress of vaccinations and the new guidelines from the CDC, we want to let you know that as a public maritime vessel we adhere to U.S. Coast Guard regulations and will continue to require masks to be worn by all guests and employees, regardless of vaccination status. When the U.S. Coast Guard adjusts or lifts this Executive Order, we will evaluate our safety protocols at that time and update you on our mask policy. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

COVID-19 Safety Measures

The safety of our employees and guests continues to be our number one priority. Read on to learn about the safety measures that we will be implementing.

Guest Commitment

If you plan on cruising with us, we require all guests to observe the following guidelines:

  • Face mask covering your mouth and nose at all times (indoors and outdoors) while onboard our vessels and on Blake Island.
  • Maintain at least 6 ft of distance from others (not in your immediate party) whenever possible.
  • Wash your hands often and avoid touching your face.
  • If you or anyone in your party is experiencing COVID-related symptoms, please find another time to visit us.


We are following guidance from local health officials and limiting capacities for all experiences. At the time tickets have gone on sale we have set our 2021 tour capacities to 50%. In addition, we have set a 5 person limit on sales to ensure that no more than 5 people from different households are congregating together. Private charter capacities are set based on the type of event that is being hosted and the guidance we have received. If you have any questions about our capacities or are a family larger than 5 that would like to make a reservation, please email or call 206.623.1445.

Trip Protection

Have peace of mind at the time of booking. If you need to rebook for any reason, we will issue a credit for the value of your cruise to book a later date and time with no fees. Credits are valid on all 2021 experiences and available for up to one year after the original cruise date.

Safety Measures

Our team is implementing additional preventative and safety procedures in our Pier 55 Reservation Center and on our boats. We are also strongly encouraging all employees to get vaccinated, per CDC guidelines.
