a nice surprise

This ferry ride was perfect. It was not crowded. The boat was spotless and very comfortable. The scenery was beautiful. Plus they allow dogs on board =))

I dislike the high fee, the limited ferry schedule, the high fee to bring on bikes (shouldn't we be encouraging non-use of gas guzzling?), and zero information about the waters the ferry travels in.

I wouldn't travel any other way to Seldovia if they operated year round. Great service, friendly people.

Used this ferry often. It's reliable, clean, safe and fast. The ferry will take you down the coast to Seldovia, a quiet, isolated village with a long history. The crew are great, especially the lovely Camille. They'll help with your gear and tell you what to see in Seldovia.

Do you want to get to Seldovia without flying or riding on a small vessel? Then the Seldovia Bay Ferry is the best choice for you. This catamaran style ship has an upper and lower deck, both that are enclosed with plenty of seating for the whole family. Keep your eyes out for marine life such as marine birds, sea... More

When we go to Seldovia we usually use the ferry at least one way. Clean and a dependable schedule. Not crowded plus free coffee. Parking is free right by the dock.

Really enjoyed the trip on the ferry to Seldovia always nice wildlife to see. Nice way to see Seldovia and just spend the day at the shops and trails. If you can take the longer sightseeing trip it is worth it.

Nice Day, great boat ride from homer to Seldovia. Arrived about noon, stayed 4.5 hours. Hiked trails, picked up beach glass, visited shops just had fun. Ride home was sunny and we saw a lot of sea otters and a few whales. Great day, nice crew, clean facilities

The vessel looks brand new, and reservations aren't required (we used a TourSaver coupon). Complimentary coffee and tea are available. The captain and crew were adept at spotting marine life and the captain was quite gracious about stopping so we could oooh and aaaah over the sights. During our round trip we saw both humpback and orca whales, as well... More
