Seattle Car Ferry to Port Angeles

Going to Seattle middle of July, and wanting to take car ferry from Seattle over to Port Angeles and the Olympic peninsula.  I am confused on the price and the best way to do this.  It will be middle of the week. Also, trying to find a place to stay over on the coast by Forks.

    Taking the ferry is pretty easy but it can be crowded during the middle of the week with commuters. The ferry terminal is right on the Seattle Waterfront. To get to Port Angeles take the ferry to Bainbridge Island. Its around $11 each direction for a standard vehicle & its driver, so about $22 total. You only pay for passengers when leaving Seattle, they're free on the way back :) To get to Port Angeles, exit the ferry & stay on that road, Hwy 305, until it meets up with Hwy 3. Turn north on Hwy 3 & follow the signs to Port Angeles, easy peasy. From Bainbridge Island to Forks is about a 3 hour drive, its definitely a small town in the middle of nowhere :) As for where to stay on the coast I'm no too sure. There are cabins right on an ocean inlet in La Push which is a gorgeous location...way prettier than Forks :)http://www.quileuteoceanside.com/

    Lived on Vashon Island for a couple years and this would be a great little Island for a half day visit. Hippie and artistic. K2 and Seattle's Best started here. Take West Seattle ferry to Vashon and then to Southworth(connects to peninsula).

    If you would like to go directly to Olympic Peninsula take downtown Seattle Ferry to Bremerton. Pack a cooler with cheeses , wine and snacks. We hit sunset at Lake Crescent. Threw blanket down and enjoyed. They have a lodge there as well. Forks offers nothing but a diner. Another amazing place is Lake Quinault Also, check Hurricane Ridge, Washington Which is beautiful this time of year. Not much in Port Angeles.

    Schedules for ferries WSDOT ... Not very expensive.

    This is a beautiful place on the coast called the Kalaloch Lodge

    Unfortunately there is no ferry to Port Angeles from Seattle . Your best bet would be to drive North of Seattle 20 minutes to the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry .

    http://www.wsdot.com/ferries/schedule/ScheduleDetail.aspx?departingterm=8&arrivingterm=12&roundtrip=true

    Then drive to Port Angeles, about a 45 minutes scenic drive.

    Hey Jan

    From Seattle , take the ferry to Bainbridge Island and then drive over the Hood Canal Bridge and take 101 to Port Angeles . You can also drive around south of the sound to Port Angeles without taking a ferry.

    I've stayed at this cool (a little bit funky) place in La Push , which is about as close as you can get to Forks and be on the coast. There is a standard hotel on the site, but what I liked were the little stand alone rooms called 'Campers' -- very cute.

    Take the Edmonds-Kingston Ferry see schedule: http://www.wsdot.com/ferries/ Edmonds is 30 min north of Seattle. Then follow the signs to Hood Canal Bridge and on up to Port Angeles . You can also take the Seattle- Bainbridge Ferry but the drive is 30 min longer from the Bainbridge ferry terminal. There are several hotel/motels up in Port Angeles.

    It's possible to drive around and not take the car ferry to save some money. When we go to Port Angeles , we take the Seattle to Bainbridge Ferry . Fares for the ferry vary depending on how many passengers and the size of your vehicle. Here's more info on ferry fares. Winslow , the first town on Bainbridge, has some great shops and restaurants. Port Townsend is also really fun to visit.

    I don't recall any Seattle to Port Angeles car ferry routes. There's a Port Angeles to Victoria BC ferry. Go on the WA State Ferry site to routes and all will be reflected, as well as the cost. To go to the Olympic Peninsula by car ferry from Seattle, you can take the Seattle to Bainbridge Ferry, the Edmonds to Kingston, (for longer drive) the Seattle to Bremerton. (I can't answer the Forks question. Check out AIRB&B website as a thought)
