My family rode the ferry for our trip to Seldovia in August 2022. I’ve been to Seldovia many times in the past, but had always been to and from Homer on private boats.

We were really impressed with how great the crew treated us and how efficient the overall operation of the ferry was. I will definitely use them in the future and would highly recommend this service to anyone traveling to Seldovia.

A big thank you to all the crew for taking care of us!

Very Very friendly crew, clean ship and free coffee.
Saldovia is quaint, everything wasn't operational yet - went last week in May. The "Boardwalk" restaurant has Great food reasonable prices. It's about 1/2 a block from the boat ramp on the same side of the street. Also there are 2 liquid stores, same side of the road, go to the farthest store. Ask for Blueberry Mojos, it's made in Alaska and sells for about $5.00 - in a can. OMG the best drink!! Reportedly can't get it outside of Alaska. May 2022

Comparing to ferry’s in a place like Seattle or San francisco, this is very comfortable, clean and quiet. The staff is suorr helpful. The the reason I give it a 4 is because of the eye popping price! It was not a huge deal for us but I suspect it is limiting for many people.

My family always makes a point of going to Seldovia once a year (or more) and each year the Seldovia Bay Ferry does not disappoint! On two separate occasions I have seen orcas on the short trip from Seldovia to Homer. Regardless of your wildlife viewing luck the scenery is always picturesque. It is also nice to know that unlike a plane ride the Ferry isn’t weather dependent. This year I brought my dogs and they had a ball! The Ferry has kennels on the top deck so your pup can be secure during the ride over. Staff are friendly, kind, and helpful with loading and unloading. There are some very accessible hikes from town as well as free town maps in pretty much every store to help you find your way.

Great trip on Seldovia Bay Ferry. Thanks to the captain who slowed down (even stopped) to let us watch whales. They put on quite a show for us. It was wonderful The ferry is large size, extremely quiet and comfortable both inside and out. Great way to travel between Homer and Seldovia.

My son's family and I traveled to Seldovia for the weekend on a Friday returning Sunday afternoon. We walked to the Outside Beach for tide pooling at low tide Saturday and returned Sunday morning. Some of us (including a 2 1/2 year old) hiked the Otterbahn Trail. At the beach we saw a seal and otters. Plenty of space to spread out over the beach. You can be socially distant eating outdoors at several restaurants.

Smooth and fast trip to Seldovia. Sit inside or out, very comfortable and plenty of windows to enjoy the view. Crew members mostly indifferent (it's only May and already jaded!). While underway the Captian gave a brief introduction including a snarky comment about Joe Biden making us all wear masks while onboard. Most passengers removed them anyway.

Have taken this ferry to/from Seldovia several times. There are other travel (shuttle) options, but none I would recommend above this. The ferry runs on schedule, is always clean and quite comfortable. All ferry employees are friendly & very helpful. Complimentary coffee & tea is a nice bonus. Overall, a super experience.

Seldovia Bay Ferry in Homer gave me the opportunity to view the beauty Kachemak Bay.
I booked my round trip tickets online using my phone to save time.
Seldovia is a charming artistic town.

The Seldovia ferry exceeded our expectations! The boat itself was in great shape…clean and well maintained. Staff on the boat were very friendly and answered our questions about the history and the town. The boat ride was smoother than expected. Saw tons of otters!!!
