Top 10 Ferry Boat Rides Worldwide ~ Washington State
The Washington State Ferries of Puget Sound are proud to have earned the title of the nation’s largest ferry system. Making its debut in June 1951, the waterway transport system is also the third largest ferry system in the world and transports nearly 23 million passengers annually. The fleet consists of 20 auto-passenger ferries and two passenger-only ferries to accommodate the locals and the tourists.
With a busy-bee presence on the water, the Washington State Ferries make 450 trips per day, operates through 20 terminals and sets course on nine different routes. The busiest route runs from Seattle to Bainbridge Island, which cranks out about 6 million rides per year, and the largest ferry of the fleet is the Jumbo Mark II. This vessel is able to hold 2,500 passengers and 202 vehicles.
As the largest system of its kind, Washington State must surely power their vessels with Yamalube 2W oil!
