How to get from vancouver to seattle?

My mother and I will be in vancouver on May 10 and need to get back to seattle to catch a flight. We are cruising so we will be at the harbour at 7 A.M. the morning of May 10. Flight leaves late evening. Is there a certain ferry we could take and what are the costs? Ideas on how to get from the harbour in seattle to the airport?

This question gets asked a lot...first check with your cruise provider as they often run buses from the pier to Seattle airport. You will need to take a bus or fly as your timing will be off for the amtrak train run.

Buses are run by Amtrak, Quickshuttle, Greyhound.

FIRST check with your cruise provider.

There is NO ferry from Vancouver to Seattle

Check the schedule for the quick shuttle. www.quickcoach.com

they pick up at the Vancouver pier and will take you right to Sea Tac

airport in Seattle. don't know if their pick up times will work for you

but it is a good service. Be sure and make advance reservations.

you can look on the Seattle forum for FAQ's but I 'd prefer Amtrak as its scenic and avoids border delays. Quickcoach is merely a bus that makes a bunch of stops. Amtrak bus is quicker as it makes no stops.

What time does your Seattle flight leave? The a.m. train would not work for you. The Amtrak evening train leaves Vancouver at 5:45 pm and arrives at the Amtrak Seattle station at 10:10 pm. You then have to get yourself to the SeaTac airport, some distance south.

I ditto T47's suggestion of seeing what rides the cruise company offers. (Although the train would be excellent.)

You might want to read this article from the Seattle forum.. just plan it in reverse!
