Update on the Stehekin Ferry

Well folks, the dream is looking to finally be a reality! Operating as the “Stehekin Ferry”, a 32 passenger catamaran is dangerously close to being completed, tested, and ready to serve the needs of travelers visiting Stehekin. Woo Hoo!

This new boat company, owned and operated by Colter and Lindsey Courtney, is working to get their new website up and running. They hope to have it online by mid-February. Boat operations are expected to start May 6.

The new website will be stehekinferry.com, and we’ll let you know as soon as it goes live. Once active, you will be able to find all the info you need regarding the services provided, as well as making online bookings for the boat.

We are super excited about the perks this new boat service will provide to our customers! Here are just a few reasons we think you will LOVE this new boat:

  • No more driving in the dark – Instead of getting up at the crack of dawn to drive to catch an early morning boat, you can now leave home at a reasonable hour, and arrive at the boat dock to board at 1pm. When it is time to return home, you will get back to your car by 12:30pm, allowing plenty of time to drive home in daylight.
  • More personalized service – This boat only holds 32 passengers. This allows the crew to take a more personalized and friendly approach to serving their customers, and we think you will notice the difference!
  • Comfort meets convenience – Enjoy the smooth, quiet ride from the comfortable leather airline seating. It’s like flying first class! Combine that with the convenient schedule and the entire journey becomes an incredible adventure as you take in all the amazing scenery on Lake Chelan.

Also of important note – Stehekin Valley Ranch will be meeting this boat with our bus, so you will have prompt service getting to the Ranch after arrival in Stehekin. Of course, a stop at the bakery on the way up is always a possibility as well…
