Full service to San Juan Islands resumes Wednesday, Aug. 9

(ANACORTES)- The Anacortes/San Juan Islands and Anacortes/Sidney, BC ferry routes will resume their regular Summer 2017 schedule Wednesday morning with the Yakima rejoining the route.

The route operated on an alternate four-boat schedule on Tuesday after the Samish was pulled from service because of engine problems. Because the route had one fewer boat, three sailings were cancelled Tuesday, while other sailings had limited space. Also, vessels were running 20 to 60 minutes behind schedule Tuesday due to loading delays caused by the temporary four-boat schedule.

The Yakima’s return means the route will go back to its regular five-boat schedule.
