The Society of American Travel Writers (SATW), the world's largest organization of professional travel journalists and photographers, recently polled its members to come up with the "Top 10" most exciting ferry rides in the world. We are pleased to announce that the ferry ride to the San Juan Islands came in 4th!

According to SATW president Bea Broda, "Public and private ferry boats provide an inexpensive alternative to cruises, often traversing some of the world's most beautiful harbors, fjords, rivers and waterways at bargain prices."
