Transportation

Canoe, rowboat or sailboat . The steamboat Evangel included Lummi Island on its itinerary in 1883. Previous to that islanders would often hitch a ride with a Lummi Native in a large cedar war canoe.

In the 1880's and 90's boat services were at best periodic and often by chance.

Until a network of roads was built, Lummi Island residents traveled the island on foot, by horse and later by bicycle when the cannery workers introduced them. In 1921, the automobile came to the island in the steamer, Imp owned by Frank Wright of Carlisle Cannery. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Wright also put his boat, the Carlisle, into service for passengers traveling to Bellingham.

It wasn't long before a bus would travel around the island then via the boat, to and from Bellingham. Islanders could travel twice a day - in the summer. In 1923 the wood burning Central ferry went into service with an hourly trips.

Once ferry services began there were many ups and downs, private services and government services, until the service settled into today's regular 6 minute service.
