Guemes Island Ferry Fares

Guemes Ferry Peak Fares

Guemes Ferry surcharge will take effect August 1 
On June 18, 2018, the Board of Skagit County Commissioners voted unanimously to adopt a resolution implementing a vessel replacement surcharge expected to raise approximately $235,000 annually. Surcharge funds collected can only be used for the purchase or construction of a new vessel or debt service resulting from construction of a new vessel. In addition to the surcharge, the Commissioners also approved two additional fare changes: Extending the expiration of vehicle punch cards from 90 to 120 days, and eliminating the fee for bicycles.

The surcharge and new fare schedule will take effect starting August 1, 2018. Vehicle/motorcycle punch cards purchased prior to August 1 will expire in 90 days. Vehicle/motorcycle punch cards purchased on August 1 and thereafter will expire in 120 days. All punch cards purchased between now and August 1 will be valid until expiration. Punch cards may not be returned, exchanged or refunded.
