The ferry is top notch and the ride is beautiful. Look around the tour companies for the best deal.

“The Way to Go to Seldovia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2011

We've lived in Alaska between 23-29 years and neither of us had ever been to Seldovia. So we packed up the dog and took a ride on the Seldovia Bay Ferry. We were even able to take our dog (keep in mind that the dog must be on leash, by your side, and outside on deck at all times or else they will make you put your dog in a kennel). The ferry is fast (about 45 mins without the side-trip to Gull Rock or bad weather) and you get about 4-5 hrs in Seldovia (all you really need). Good price, comfortable boat and pretty stable for this notoriously seasick traveler.

“SELDOVIA FERRY NOTHING SPECIAL”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2011

We read the brochures and decided that we needed to head to Seldovia on the Ferry. We did use the buy one get one free coupon from the Toursaver Book (or Northern Lights) Coupon Book so that saved us some money. We took the afternoon Ferry Ride as it was supposed to take an additional half an hour to stop at Gull Island and the bird rookeries. The problem with the afternoon ride is that you only get 45 minutes at Seldovia if you want to get the last ferry back (at least in May). We heard another couple on the Ferry say they were concerned they weren't going to have enough time to see Seldovia, and then when they were boarding for the return, they said, "sure glad we didn't have more time - there was nothing to see that even took the 45 minutes." -- and that was our feeling exactly. There were restaurants and tourist shops -- not much else. The harbor is pretty - but not much different than Homer. The Ferry did not take its time or slow to show us anything or any animals in the harbour as stated........................so not worth it.

A bright spot is that the Ferry is a first class vessel -- very new, and very clean and comfortable with seating outside as well as inside. If you have some reason to be at Seldovia - the Ferry is a nice way to get there. In hindsight, we wouldn't have gone there.
