We were so glad to have used the BC and Alaskan ferries to get from Vancouver to Vancouver Island then Prince Rupert and along the inside passage to Juneau. We would have like to... read more

We took the 7am ferry from Valdez to Whittier. Easy to book and the staff placing the vehicles on the ferry were very professional. Sailing was very smooth with plenty of seats to sit in. Raining on the day we travelled so could not see any views from the ferry. Had the breakfast in the restaurant but food was not... More

The Alaskan Marine Highway is a great way to travel the inside passage. The terminal is easy to maneuver and the views are spectacular as you see lots of wild life along the way. My son had an accident and took and stumble and fall and required stitches. The steward and team did a great job of getting him patched... More

During a recent 3 week, 6 port, self guided visit to AK we used the Marine Highway for 4 legs of it: Ketchikan- Wrangell, Sitka-Juneau, Juneau - Haines and Haines-Juneau.. It was easy to use, well organized, convenient, comfortable, up close to the beautiful geography, nature and wildlife of the Inside Passage. Also fun to meet local residents who use... More

I've lost count of our ferry trips on the Alaska Marine Highway System, but we've added three more trips this month. AMHS provides views that no-one else will, except perhaps for a rare few small boat luxury cruise companies. AMHS does it on a regular schedule and for a very affordable price. The single-day cruises provide great forward viewing galleries... More

We went from Prince Rupert, BC to Haines, AK. It was an overnight trip and the most scenic route! The food in the cafeteria was very good and all the staff was helpful and friendly. It was the most exciting part of our trip. The little cabins are basic and plain but the beds were amazingly comfortable. Sadly we found... More

Our group took the ferry from Sitka to Juneau. It was about a five hour trip but the boat was very comfortable and spacious. The scenery was great and it was an enjoyable trip.

Boarded the Kennicott in Bellingham for the last leg of my journey to Juneau. The meals were well prepared and they had a nice selection. Loading the vehicles went off without a hitch. The staff is very helpful. This is not a structured cruise. There is a small movie theater. This is a cruise to meet people and see the... More

Our car was booked for a 7 am ferry. We were told that we HAD to line up at 5 am and wait with the car. The cars were loaded on to the ferry at 6:45; no reason whatsoever existed to make us wait for two hours in our car. The loading and unloading of vehicles was like something you... More

This ferry is an institution by itself. I had a wonderful time and I highly recommend it. I spent 5 nights travelling from Haines, AK, to Bellingham, WA, via the Inside Passage. The scenery was spectacular. The ship is very clean and well run. There is something for every budget and need. I had a double berth cabin (one bunk... More
