Lummi Island Ferry Information...

Lummi Island ferry runs are frequent and inexpensive

Compared to the other San Juan islands, Lummi is a cinch to reach. Nearby Interstate Highway 5 connects Seattle, Bellingham and Vancouver B.C. The turn-off to Lummi Island is slightly north of Bellingham at I-5, exit #260. Watch for the sign for "Slater Road" and "Lummi Island". Once off the freeway, turn west, drive about 3 miles to the signal light at Haxton Way and the Silver Reef Casino, and turn left. Continue on Haxton Way through the Lummi Indian Reservation to Gooseberry Point (about 7 miles). Slow down at the reduce speed signs, you are almost there. Cars for the ferry line take turns using the two right hand lanes, which begin just after the big concrete parking area on the far side of the drive ways that access the little store and boat launching site. Often, in response to longer lines, the ferry will run back and forth every 20 minutes regardless of the published schedule, so stand by.
