Heading to Vashon Island for Strawberry Fest? This year, you will have another option to get there – the Water Taxi!
King County Water Taxi will offer the first ever Saturday service on the Vashon Island route for the Vashon Island Strawberry Festival on Saturday, July 20th. Typically, the Water Taxi Vashon Island route is only available Monday – Friday.
This expanded service is only for Saturday, July 20th and should provide a convenient option to those looking for passenger only service from downtown Seattle. The Strawberry Festival is known throughout the region as a great event for families and wait times for ferries can be quite long. Having the Water Taxi as an option this year will help you get to Vashon Island and start enjoying the festival without having to travel to West Seattle, Southworth, or Tacoma.
