The ferries of the Alaska Marine Highway System provide regular service between Bellingham, Wash. and Whittier, Alaska, 60 miles south of Anchorage. The ferry Kennicott sails the Inside Passage and crosses the Gulf of Alaska 

Please note: Due to the shortage of licensed mariners, there are no Prince Rupert or cross-gulf sailings scheduled for the summer of 2024. Visit for the most up-to-date information.

The blue, white and gold ferries of Alaska provide a vital link between Alaska communities. But this is Alaska, so even no-frills sailing passes amazing landscapes, sights incredible wildlife, and taps the spirit of the Great Land.


Cruises connect the Pacific Northwest with Alaska. One-way cruises depart Vancouver, British Columbia, travel the Inside Passage in Southeast Alaska,...
