Discover the Alaska Marine Highway

Explore Alaska in 2022 By Ferry

The Alaska Marine Highway is a state-owned ferry system that operates a fleet of vessels along a scenic 3,500-mile route from Bellingham to the Aleutian Islands. It provides year-round transportation to over 30 port communities and is a unique option for travelers. Originally designed to provide transportation to areas of Alaska without roads, the Marine Highway offers locals and visitors the ability to travel through some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. It’s an ideal way to travel, allowing you the flexibility to create your own schedule and experience Alaska at your own pace.

Riders can walk on board or bring a car, truck, RV, motorcycle or other means of transport, such as kayaks and bicycles. Bringing a vehicle lets visitors combine a driving vacation with the ferry. Riders can drive on in our southern port of Bellingham, Washington. Riding the ferry to or from your Alaska adventure means more time to view the scenery and relax with friends or family.

On board, passengers can book a cabin that sleeps as many as four people. Cabins are sold per trip, not per person. Cabins and car-deck space fills quickly so reservations are highly recommended. Passengers can also lay out under the solarium, a heated area on deck with unimpeded views, or for a unique adventure, pitch a tent and camp out under the stars.

The Alaska Marine Highway provides a unique and unforgettable way to experience Alaska. From hiking and glacier viewing to kayaking and fishing, the options for adventure are limited only by your imagination. Whether you walk on, drive a car or ride a bike, traveling on an Alaska ferry is an experience you don’t want to miss.

It’s not too late to book for summer 2022! Visit www.Ferryalaska.com or call us toll free at 1-800-642-0066 for rates and availability.
