Where We Go

The ferries of the Alaska Marine Highway make up a large part of Alaska's highway system, covering 3,500 miles of coastline and providing service to over 30 communities that stretch from Bellingham, WA to Dutch Harbor in the Aleutian Chain. We offer a rare opportunity to experience Alaska's rugged landscape and diverse culture. Whether your interest is in bike trails, secluded coves for kayaking, hiking trails or camping, the Alaska state ferries are the perfect way to experience each region and the communities that populate Alaska's diverse and scenic coastline.

See Alaska Your Way

Traveling with the Alaska Marine Highway allows you to see Alaska from a new perspective while meeting locals and fellow travelers. Whether you're seeking adventure, relaxation, or a combination of both, the Alaska state ferry provides a truly unforgettable experience.

Fly to Alaska and hop aboard

You can fly into the state via one of the larger airports such as Juneau or Ketchikan and hop on board to explore remote villages and towns inaccessible by car. Along the way, marvel at the spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife, from whales and sea lions to bald eagles soaring overhead.

On many of our vessels, you can enjoy the comfort of the ferry within its cozy cabins. We invite you to explore remote communities and learn about their unique customs and history. With stops along the way, you'll have the chance to take a few days to hike, fish, and kayak in some of the most pristine wilderness areas on the planet.
