Fast-Ferry Sailings Resume today, Tuesday April 3. Kitsap Transit will resume operating its current fast-ferry schedule on Tuesday, April 3. On Monday afternoon, Rich Passage 1 (RP1) completed sea trials successfully. The U.S. Coast Guard also approved the repairs made during the vessel’s two-week stint in dry dock at a shipyard in Seattle.

Monday’s fast-ferry sailings were cancelled due to the lack of an available back-up vessel. The Rich Passage 1 (RP1) was scheduled to return to service Monday, April 2 after an intense two weeks of repairs in dry dock that included upgrades to all four engines. Unfortunately, technical issues with the interface between the jet propulsion system and engines could not be resolved in time for Monday’s scheduled sailings due to a variety of factors, including limited shipyard staff over the Easter holiday weekend.

Monthly passholders can go to Kitsap Fast Ferry ambassador located at Pier 52 in Seattle with questions.
