The only route to the south end of Vashon Island is by ferry from Point Defiance to Tahlequah. For a young family, the ride represented a cheap outing and a chance to be on the water in summer. The passage is deep, over 90 fathoms at one point en route, and over the years we have seen whales and dolphins swim near as we crossed. We crossed on the ferry Hiyu in 1982.
