Day 76 - Loading Onto the Ferry

Saturday (76) - This may be the last post for a few days. I heard that Internet wasn’t really available while on the ferry. I checked in around 1pm. Kinda early but that’s just the way I am. I rather be early than feel rushed. And since I’m not at the front of the line, I’m not the only one.

The last time I was on the ferry was 1975 (I think) and I don’t think things have changed much. Proof of Covid vaccination is no longer required and it sounds like the Alaska travel declaration form is not needed either. The clerk at check-in said that these were recent changes. 

Here is the car deck. They had me pull all the way to the bow then circle around to face the stern on the port side. 

As you can see it’s a pretty tight parking space. The crew then anchors the wheels to the red discs to keep the vehicles from moving while underway. 

After leaving Bellingham, we will be in Canadian waters so no cell service is expected. The “cabin” is about 7’ by 6’ with a small porthole. 


  1. The pictures within the very bring back memories of my one and only trip on that very on my way back from Alaska back in 2013! Wishing you Fair Winds and Following Seas!
