The MV Walla Walla is a Jumbo Class ferry operated by Washington State Ferries.

After being replaced on the Seattle-Winslow route by the Jumbo Mark II Class ferry, she began serving as a fill-in vessel for whenever one of the larger ferries goes into scheduled maintenance periods, usually she can be found on either the Seattle-Bremerton route Seattle-Bainbridge Island route, or the Edmonds-Kingston route.[1] Currently she is serving on the Seattle-Bremerton route.
