Sea-Tac to Bremerton?

Hi,
I just moved here and I'm having my 17 year old niece visit me. She is flying into Sea Tac Airport but I live in Port Orchard. I have no idea what is the easiest way to pick her up. Is there a shuttle from the airport to a ferry that would take her to Bremerton? Also, do you know the cost or time of the ferry? Thank you so much!

My DH used to be stationed at Bangor and usually just drove from the airport to the base via the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. There is a shuttle service that he used a couple times over there, but I can't remember the name of it. Not Shuttle Express, but another company. You might check with MWR and ask about it. I don't think the ferry is the best option since she would need to get from SEATAC to the ferry terminal, and then would need to wait for the next ferry. The shuttle would be the most convenient for you, but if you are willing to go pick her up it is a really easy drive from Port Orchard and you really cannot get lost unless you try

BTW, enjoy your time in the area. It has much to offer

We live in Seattle and have family in Bremerton--we usually drive both ways to visit.

The Kistsap Airporter would be the easiest for you.

There is no shuttle from SeaTac to the ferry terminal, but there is a shuttle to downtown from where your niece could walk or taxi to the ferry: http://www.portseattle.org/seatac/gr...uttlebus.shtml

Here is ferry info: http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries

The Bremerton/Kitsap Airporter is the company I was thinking of but blanked on the name.

Thank you for all the help! The Kitsap Airporter sounds perfect. I really don't want to drive because I have a two-year old that hates long drives I'm enjoying it here so far, much prettier than my hometown of San Diego!!

Definitely use the shuttle service.

As other have clarified already to go by ferry she'd need to get downtown by taxi to the waterfront, wait at the dock for the next ferry, take the Bremerton ferry...
