02/22/2018: "Hyak Returns, & So Does Food"
Hyak joins the Anacortes/San Juan Islands route as the #1 vessel. M/V Elwha will sail as the #2 vessel. Food service will be available on the upper decks, but all other upper deck access and seating will remain closed due to Coast Guard regulations for "Super" class vessels.
Passengers will be able to purchase food and non-alcoholic beverage items in the upper deck galley and return to the lower passenger deck. (Please note that Washington State law prohibits the consumption of alcohol outside of the designated galley serving/seating area; therefore, alcoholic beverages cannot be sold on these vessels while the upper passenger deck is closed for the winter sailing schedule.)
