How far in advance can I make a reservation?
You can book a reservation up to two months in advance.
- Reservation space availability will be released in tiers. A portion will be released up to two months before the sailing, some will be released only days before a sailing.
- Releasing reservation availability in tiers allows equal access to reservation space for customers who plan far in advance and those who make travel plans closer to the sailing date.
Why should I make a reservation?
Have more time. Long wait times at Anacortes and other San Juan Island terminals often cut into time spent soaking in the islands. Reserving a spot for your vehicle guarantees a space on the ferry, so you can have more time to do what you want, instead of waiting at the terminal.
Stay flexible. You can cancel or change a vehicle reservation until 5 p.m. the day before your scheduled travel date. One change is allowed after 5 p.m. on the day prior to travel.
Plan ahead. Reservations are available on all westbound sailings leaving Anacortes. Eastbound service is available from Friday Harbor and Orcas Island.
