Scott, I ride the Bremerton to Seattle ferry every day, as I work in Seattle. Last Thursday May 22nd, WSP and the Coast guard harassed another brown couple on board using a video camera.

I don't know where the San Juan Island Visitors Bureau gets their information ("U.S. citizens traveling within Washington state" — and that includes the San Juans, remember —"do not need passports, only their usual personal ID, like a driver's license," says Jacobson ), but you do not need any form of identification to board a Washington State ferry. The system is public transportation and you pay a fare at a booth to either walk on or drive on. If you pay cash you do not have to show any identification. You may, of course, be denied the ability to buy an alcoholic beverage aboard without proof of 21 years of age.
