Catching a Ferry with Fido


Travel to several of the islands located throughout the Puget Sound is only possible by ferry.  The Washington State Ferries are maintained by the Washington State Department of Transportation.   Dogs are allowed to board the ferry.  Crated dogs may be brought into the interior areas of the ferry.  Dogs must be attended at all times on the ferry.  Leashed animals are allowed in certain areas.  
King County Metro Water Taxi
The King County Metro Water Taxi runs from the downtown Seattle waterfront to Alki Beach.  It is a short ride of no more than 15 minutes.  This water taxi is part of the King County Metro Transportation system.  Service animals are allowed, but please be aware that no other pets are allowed on the water taxi.
Tour Boats/Cruise Ships
Seattle is home to numerous tour boat and cruise ship companies, each of which have differing pet policies. Seattle Pup encourages dog owners to contact the companies prior to purchasing their ticket and boarding with their pup.
