Colman Dock was shut down Tuesday morning after a suspicious package was found in the ferry terminal on Seattle’s waterfront.

Washington State Ferries sent out a rider alert at 10:42 a.m. Dec. 26 warning that terminal operations at Colman Dock would be temporarily suspended.

WSF announced on Twitter just before 11 a.m. that Colman Dock had been reopened.

The suspicious package was reportedly found to contain Christmas gifts.

The security scare pushed several ferries off-schedule.

WSF said the 10:25 a.m. sailing of the ferry M/V Puyallup from Bainbridge Island was late, as well as the 10:40 a.m. sailing of the ferry M/V Tacoma out of Seattle.

The ferry M/V Kaleetan was also late on its 9:45 a.m. sailing out of Bremerton.
