From Sea-Tac to the Olympic Peninsula

Hurricane-Ridge-Road.jpgMany travelers have questions about how to get from Seattle to the Olympic Peninsula. There are a number of options-  using public and private transportation- to get from Sea-Tac (Seattle-Tacoma International Airport) to the Olympic Peninsula.
  • One option is to take a Washington State Ferry from downtown Seattle to Bremerton or Bainbridge Island. The Central Link lightrail departs Sea-Tac approximately every 7.5-15 minutes. One way lightrail ticket prices are $2.75 for adults, $1.25 for youth, and .75 for seniors. Passengers depart at the Pioneer Square stop and walk (around 8 minutes) or take a taxi the last leg to the ferry terminal.
  •  Olympic Bus Lines - Dungeness Line offers two trips daily from Port Angeles, Sequim, and Kingston to SeaTac (as well as a couple other destinations). Fares are $49 one way or $79 roundtrip. Rocket Transportation offers shuttle service from additional locations including as far away as Forks and Neah Bay. Prices vary depending on starting point.
  • Kenmore Air, a partner of Alaska Airlines, flies daily from Sea-Tac to Port Angeles. On a clear day, this quick flight features stunning views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains.
  • Visitors wishing to rent a car can drive South towards Tacoma on I5  and then West on WA-16. From here you can head South on WA-3 towards Shelton or North towards the Hood Canal Bridge.
All pricing and times should be verified with the company ahead of travel. We hope you have a safe trip.
