This ferry service offers many routes in Washington State, as well as a route from Sidney, near Victoria, to Anacortes in Washington. The ferry ride is about 3 hours long and the ferry carries both passengers and vehicles. You can also catch a ferry to Sidney from Friday Harbor, Washington, in the San Juan Islands. This ferry ride is about 1 hour and 15 minutes. While leashed dogs are allowed on the ferry routes mentioned above, the following pet regulations apply. On the newer ferries that have outside stairwells, dogs are allowed on the car deck and on the outdoor decks above the car deck. If the ferry has indoor stairwells, dogs are only allowed on the deck where they boarded the ferry. For example, if your dog comes onto the ferry in your car, he or she has to remain on the car deck. If you walk onto the ferry with your dog, your pooch is allowed on the outside deck where you boarded but cannot go onto other decks. In cases where your pet has to remain on the car deck, you can venture to the above decks without your pet to get food at the snack bars. However, the ferry system recommends in general that you stay with your pooch in the car. For any of the ferries, dogs are not allowed inside the ferry terminals. The ferries in Anacortes leave from 2100 Ferry Terminal Road. The ferries in Friday Harbor leave from 91 Front Street and the ferries in Sidney leave from 2499 Ocean Avenue. Reservations are recommended 48 hours or more in advance if you are bringing a vehicle. Because you will be crossing over an international border, identification for Customs and Immigration is required. U.S. and Canadian citizens traveling across the border will need proof of citizenship such as your passport or a certified copy of your birth certificate issued by the city, county or state/province where you were born. You will also need photo identification such as a current valid driver's license. People with children need to bring their child's birth certificate. Single parents, grandparents or guardians traveling with children often need proof or notarized letters from the other parent authorizing travel. Dogs traveling to Canada or returning to Canada need a certificate from their vet showing a rabies vaccination within the past 3 years. Dogs traveling to the U.S. or returning to the U.S. need to have a valid rabies vaccination certificate (including an expiration date and vet signature). The certificate must show that the dog had the rabies vaccine at least 30 days prior to entry and within the past 36 months.
