Faunt/Va/Sw & PD/Tahl - Reminder - Vashon Island Low Tides for January 2021

Vashon Island Low Tides

Trucks with a clearance of less than 14" should not travel to/from the north end of Vashon and Point Defiance during the following dates/times:

  • January 27, 2021  9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.  -1.7
  • January 28, 2021  9:30 p.m. to 11:45 p.m.  -2.0
  • January 29, 2021  10:15 p.m. to 12:30 a.m.  -1.9
  • January 30, 2021  11:15 p.m. to 12:45 a.m.  -1.5

At low tides these loading ramps create a steep slope where the hinge at the top causes an extreme angle for trucks or RVs with a low ground clearance. Waiting for a higher tide allows for this angle to lessen at the bridge seat (top). This allows for safer clearances for vehicles low to the ground and keeps them from scraping or hanging up at these locations.

Customers Advised to Limit Non-Essential Travel/Statewide Mask Requirement

As a reminder, the Governor’s Safe Start Plan is in effect. Customers are advised to limit travel on ferries to essential purposes only, and to observe physical distancing. On some sailings, the number of walk-on passengers may be restricted so that riders can maintain physical distance.

Customers traveling by vehicle are encouraged to remain in their vehicles for the duration of their trip, while those in the cabin should practice safe physical distancing, wash your hands and avoid traveling if you feel ill.

Passengers are also asked to comply with the Governor’s statewide order requiring that face masks and coverings be worn in public to limit the spread of COVID-19. The requirement includes both indoor and outdoor spaces.

Thank you for helping us do our part to keep our community healthy.
