Summer ferry schedules start June 24. Washington State Ferries plans to post its “best times” for travel soon. Based on last year’s summer’s tips (which are expected to be similar to this year’s), the best days to travel from Edmonds to Kingston route are Mondays and Tuesdays before noon or after 5 p.m. Coming back is tougher. The best bets are Mondays through Fridays, before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
For Mukilteo to Clinton, you’ll find little congestion before 9 a.m. most days, as well as after 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Coming back, plan to get on a ferry by 6 a.m., or wait until after 6 p.m. (and later if it’s a Saturday or Sunday).
