The ferry from Hollis to Ketchikan is a perfect return trip from POW if you have lots of fish. It's a great relaxing ride back to Ketchikan. Food is good and the scenery is beautiful.

Great food and service. Comfortable seating. Excellent views all along the way. Most of all, daily service to and from Prince of Wales Island for locals and visitors alike. Decent price.

We went on the ferry from Ketchikan to Prince Wales Island. After flying all day to get to Ketchikan, this was a wonderful way to get to our final destination. Sit back and enjoy the splendor of Alaska! The 3 hour ride was relaxing.

Great trip as always. Food was good although no banana bread! My favorite on most trips! The ship was not too full so it was easy to be able to sit and read while munching out.
