Vashon Island Tour
Come join the fun on a joint adventure between the Cascade Austin Healey Car Club and the MG Car Club Northwest Centre as we learn a little about Vashon Island’s history, and places of interest all the while driving on some great country roads not normally travelled.

Vashon Island, 8900 SW Harbor Dr, Vashon, WA 98070, USA
We will be taking the 9:15 am Pt. Defiance ferry. We will meet in the Big Lots/Starbucks parking lot at 23rd and N Pearl in Tacoma at 8:15 a.m. and leave for the boat queue at 8:30. Bring Sunscreen, sweater, phone/camera, cash for lunch, gas, miscellaneous purchases, etc.
Please RSVP email to Lee Orphan at email@example.com if you are attending, or if you have any questions.
IMPORTANT FERRY INFORMATION:
There may be long lines at the ferry docks on Saturday so arrive at least 30 minutes early.
Boats leave Pt. Defiance at 8:25 and 9:15. Drive about 5 miles from Tahlequah to the stop sign in Burton and turn right. Then go left at the T to Jenson Point.
Southworth departures are at 8:35 and 9:05. Our cars will high center on the ramp to the upper level so tell the ticket booth person that you can not go to the top level. They will direct you to a different lane and you will need to back on the boat. Drive about 9 miles to the fourth stop sign and turn left in Burton and then left at the T to Jenson Point.
Leave Fauntleroy at 8:15 or 9:25. Since the West Seattle Bridge is closed, from I-5 take the Michigan Street exit, #162 and follow your GPS to the Fauntleroy ferry dock. If you need more detailed instructions reply to this message. To avoid high centering on the boat’s upper level tell the deck hand that you need to stay on the lower deck. On the island drive about 9 miles to the fourth stop sign in Burton and turn left then left at the T to Jenson Point.
