Caption Deception Pass ferry @ Dewey
Description Deception Pass Ferry landing near Yokeko Point at Dewey. This appears to be an earlier ferry prior to the Olsons taking of the route in 1920. Before a bridge spanned the waters of Deception Pass, a ferry system transported travelers between Blout's Point (now called Yokeko Point) on south Fidalgo Island and Hoypus Point on north Whidbey Island. Beginning in 1913, a launch towed or pushed a barge across the water. In 1922, Aug and Berte Olson replaced the barge with the 64 foot long ferry DECEPTION PASS. The ferry ride cost 50 cents for cars and 10 cents per passenger. The ferry operated until the Deception Pass Bridge was completed in 1935.
Date 1918 c.
