By Peninsula Daily News

SEATTLE — Washington state ferries started their winter sailing schedule today.

Service to Sidney, B.C., is suspended, and fewer sailings are scheduled in the San Juan Islands and some other routes.

The winter schedule is in effect through April 5.

Schedule details, including the Port Townsend-Coupeville route, are online at

Unaffected is the privately owned MV Coho ferry between Port Angeles and Victoria, which already has begun its winter schedule.

The Coho makes one round trip daily — departing from Port Angeles at 8:20 a.m. — until the vessel goes out of service Jan. 20 for its annual two-week maintenance.

It will return to service Feb. 6. More schedule information can be found at
