The State of Alaska Marine Highway Ferry System offers year-round ferry service from Bellingham, WA to the Inside Passage
communities and Haines, AK, about 800 miles South East of Anchorage and Fairbanks, AK. Access to these cities via Haines
require a drive through Canada.
Direct service from Bellingham, WA to Whittier, two hours south of Anchorage usually operates during the Spring and Summer.
Enjoy the world-class views of Alaskan ports of call as you cruise through the Inside Passage, witnessing some of the most
magnificent scenery in the world.

Looking for a shorter trip? Or a chance to explore the different ports along the way? You can disembark at any destination,
take as long as you would like to explore, then board the ship again and continue the journey at your own pace. Disembarking
at either Skagway or Haines gives you access to Canada's Yukon Territory, and Alaska’s Alcan Highway (aka Alaska Highway).
Loading and unloading is simple-just drive on and off the ship. Alaskan ferries take walk-on passengers, cars, and RV's up to
60' feet long on most ships. You can even bring the family pet!
Roomy comfortable cabins are available for rent, or camping areas are available for those who choose to camp on board. You
will find restaurants, cafeterias, cocktail lounges, theatre areas, and play rooms available on all ships.

Alaska Ferry Fares:
Fares for passengers, cabins/staterooms and vehicles are all figured separately and based on one-way travel.
You can check the individual fares on our calculator
to determine your approximate cost. Vehicle fares do not include a driver/passenger fare.
For example, if there are two people traveling in your party, you are bringing a car on board, and you would like one cabin, you should add:
2 passenger fares + 1 vehicle fare + 1 cabin fare
