As of January 5, 2015 Washington State Ferries incorporated a Reservation system for car transport from Anacortes to the San Juan Islands and from Orcas and San Juan Island to Anacortes. Reservations for each sailing can be made up to two months in advance with a certain percentage of the car space being made available in tiers. Reservations can be purchased online at the WSDOT website or by phone at 1-888-808-7977 for Stateside callers and 206-464-6400 for callers from Out of State.
Reservation customers are given priority in loading and they can change or cancel their reservation until 5 pm of the day before the reservation’s sailing. Any changes after that time incur a $10 fee. It is requested that customers arrive between thirty
and ninety minutes ahead of sailing time.
