Are the above prices "passenger only" or for "driver & car"? Adjusted for inflation, $4.00 in 1974 is equal to $21.75 in 2019.

I bet it’s passenger only return.

15 minutes faster than the coho. probably did not have to turn around and was not restricted to a slow speed in the harbour.

June 6, 1975, the Marguerite is sold and rebranded yet still competes with the Coho on the Port Angeles run. This surprised me as I assumed the Coho had control of the PA run and the Marguerite and BC Ferries (I think) had the Seattle route.

also interesting in the previous ad one of the selling points is reservations. which predates bcf reservation capability by about 3 decades.

...I assumed the Coho had control of the PA run and the Marguerite...had the Seattle route....

This was my understanding as well.

here is a victoria clipper article that looks an awful lot like an ad.

in any event they have used the wrong photo. the IV boat in the photo is no longer in these waters.
