MVTokitae 1024x768  M/V Tokitae

I am fond of watching and riding ferry boats. So when the opportunity to ride the new ferry on it’s first day of service arose, I couldn’t pass up the chance. The newest ferry is the M/V Tokitae, which is a Coast Salish greeting meaning “nice day, pretty colors.” Indeed, the new vessel is a worthy ship and will be a nice way to get from Mukilteo to Whidbey Island for a long time to come.
