Hi, is that ferry included in the pass? What I can remember there is only a ship of BLS included in lake Thun. 

Check here validity of Interrail/Eurail in Switzerland:

But you get 50% discount for the ship. For discounted trips you don't have to add it to the pass.

This ferry is not covered by Interrail/Eurail but you get a 50% discount. No need to use a pass day and you don't add it to the app either. Simply show the pass at a CGN ticket counter in Lausanne and they should sell you the discounted ticket.

Only boats on Lake Thun and Lake Brienz are fully included (run by BLS, a railway company).

Edit : you may be able to buy a half-fare saver ticket on or SBB app for tomorrow. It costs 7.80 CHF instead of 13 CHF but it is tied to a specific boat. For 1st class a regular half-fare ticket costs 18.50 CHF (no saver tickets)
