ferry schedules between Whittier and Valdez

Does anyone happen to know how many days a week the ferries run between Whittier and Valdez in the summer? Do the actual days of the week change from year to year? The website says that the schedule will be posted in mid-Feb, but I'd prefer not to wait until then to make hotel reservations if at all possible.

1. Re: ferry schedules between Whittier and Valdez

Usually runs almost every day during the summer plus some days there are 2 runs - the slow one that is close to 6 hours and the fast ferry that is 2 hours and 45 minutes. The every day starts about the middle of June. It wasn't every day yet on June 2nd when we took it last year. The schedule has been the same for the last couple of years. See my post earlier today for some info that might help regarding using Viking Travel for the reservations.
