• Kitsap Transit's fast ferry service to resume Monday; San Juan Clipper filling in

    By: KIRO 7 News Staff


    Service for Kitsap Transit’s fast ferry will resume Monday after emergency vessel repairs forced cancellations Friday on the Kingston-Seattle route.

    Clipper Navigation will be stepping in temporarily until Thursday, using its 245-passenger San Juan Clipper to help get riders across the water.

    The San Juan is also able to accommodate up to eight bicycles.

    On Friday, the 172-passenger Melissa Ann is expected to return to service. Then on Sept. 30, the 240-passenger Finest is expected to return as the main vessel on the route.

    The Finest went in for repairs in early August.
