To get from Seattle to Bainbridge Island, you can either drive your car, ride your bike or walk on to the ferry on the Seattle side. In the summer months, the car queue waiting to get on the next ferry can get long enough that you won't get to board the next departing ferry. This is especially true on Friday evenings or holiday weekends. The advantage of riding your bike or walking on to the ferry is that you may always take the next departing ferry and you'll pay less for the ferry ride. Of course then you have to find a cheap place to leave your car on the Seattle side while you're enjoying Bainbridge Island.
