The MV Klahowya is an Evergreen State-class ferry operated by Washington State Ferries. The Klahowya can usually be found in the San Juan Islands, running the Inter-Island service. The Klahowya served nearly all of her career on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run before being moved to the San Juans to replace her sister ship, MV Evergreen State, which was to be retired. In early 2008, and again in August 2012, she did short stints on the Inter-Island run due to a vessel shortage. She was moved to the Inter-Island route on June 30th, 2014 and is expected to remain there until her retirement.
Klahowya is Chinook for "Greetings."
