I always enjoy the drive from Sequim to Seattle, because it’s a pleasant drive and only takes about two hours and 20 minutes. There are four ways to get to Seattle from Sequim. One is to fly from Fairchild International Airport in Port Angeles to SeaTac. That’s okay if you’re flying out of SeaTac. The second way is to drive south and around the the water and north to Seattle on the other side. We fondly call that the other side of the pond. That’s the way I normally go, because taking the Ferries doesn’t necessarily save time. the third way is to take the Kingston ferry to Edmonds and then drive south on I-5 to Seattle. The fourth way is to take the Bainbridge Island ferry to downtown Seattle. This photos was taken from the Bainbridge ferry as we approached the Seattle dock downtown. The loading and unloading docks for large ships is shown in this photo in the quiet dark of the evening.
The trip from Sequim to Seattle is always pleasant. We don’t have much traffic, and even if you do end up on a holiday in rush hour, the traffic to and from Sequim is steady and rarely slow bumper-to-bumper. If you want slow bumper-to-bumper, you’ll have to drive in Seattle, Tacoma, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Kent, Edmonds or Bothell during rush hour.
