Ferry from Seattle area to Olympic National Park

The shortest route from the Seattle area to Olympic National Park requires taking a boat from Washington State Ferries. From downtown, drive onto the Seattle-Bainbridge Island ferry or the Seattle-Bremerton ferry; from the northern suburbs, the Edmonds-Kingston ferry is quickest. Both ferries run multiple crossings daily (wsdot.wa.gov/ferries; www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries/pdf/wsfroutemap.pdf). When calculating whether a ferry is faster than driving, take into account the ferry schedule, boarding time, and unboarding time. In some cases it is faster to drive.
