Summary: Welcome to Seattle! And the beautiful state of Washington! Clearly, you're on the right website to get the most out of your stay. From Sea-Tac Airport, you have two excellent and scenic routes:

~ 3 hours

  • 20-30 minute drive to Seattle Ferry Terminal (assuming light traffic)
  • 35 minute crossing
  • 1 hour 45 minute drive to Port Angeles from Bainbridge Island
  • Should aim to arrive 20-30 minutes before desired sailing time
  • Ferry Schedule

~ 2 hour 30 minutes

  • No ferry required
  • Toll booth charge upon return trip entering Tacoma
  • Google Maps

Driving through Tacoma is the most time efficient and dependable route, as you do not have to manage ferry schedules. However, the Seattle-Bainbridge ferry is an incredible experience, as you encounter scenic views of Downtown Seattle, Mt. Rainier, and the Olympic Mountains as you voyage across the Puget Sound. Definitely worth experiencing at least once in your lifetime!
