Although at times it may seem like you are in another world on the Olympic Peninsula, access to it, and its many sights and wonders is quite easy.

Most out-of-state visitors fly into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (Sea-Tac), and obtain a rental car there. Below, you will find links to some of the airlines and rental car agencies that operate out of Sea-Tac. Some guests also choose to catch a commuter flight to Port Angles (see map below) and rent a car there.

Olympic Peninsula, Washington

From the Seattle area, there are three approaches to the Forks area. Far and away the most route is hop onto one of the car ferries leaving the Seattle area (downtown, or the suburb of Edmonds just to the north). From any of the ferry landings on the west side of Puget Sound, follow the signs to Port Angeles (via the Hood Canal Bridge). Simply pass through Port Angeles on Hwy 101 on continue on to Forks.

Ferry rates are around ten dollars for car / driver and one passenger. Figure on total trip time of about three hours from the Seattle area ferry docks. Ferries generally leave about once an hour during most of the day, but late night travelers may want to check the ferry schedules as departures are irregular.

You may also opt to travel south from Seattle to Tacoma and cross the Narrows Bridge across Puget Sound and then follow Hwy 101 up the eastern edge of the Peninsula up through Port Angeles and on to Forks.

The longest route consists of  heading south from Seattle on I-5 to Olympia, then proceed west on Hwy 12 to the Hoquiam / Aberdeen area, then follow Hwy 101 north up the Pacific coastline. Although about  a five hour drive, there are a number of sights along the way, especially along the Pacific Coast.
