The CBP say:
Something just seems wrong with this policy
When the BC Ferries leave the dock at Tsawassen for Swartz Bay they are immediately in US waters. On the way to Active Pass they leave US waters and return to Canada. With a ferry leaving each terminal every hour, having to clear immigration and customs would be a nightmare.
I frequently go into US waters in Haro Strait and Juan de Fuca.
