"Mirror Image" Driver goes Free - Round-trip, Driver Free during the summer and One-Way during October thru May

Drivers travel FREE during the summer on roundtrip (mirror image) tickets for passengers and accompanied drivable vehicles for travel from May 1st and completed by September 30. This discount applies only to passengers and vehicles, not to staterooms. “Driver Rides for Free” discount will also be offered from October 1 to April 30 when traveling with a drivable vehicle. Usually, from November 1 through March 30 travelers can enjoy a 30% discount for full fare adults, children and vehicles on “mirror image” round trips. A mirror image round trip is when a traveler departs from port A and travels to port B, then returns from port B to port A. Cabins, food and other items are not discounted. This great discount can be combined with driver goes free – so you save twice! Make your reservation request online. For more information, call us at 1.800.327.2571.

Fast Ferries - The "Express Route"

The Alaska Marine Highway System has fast vehicle ferry service in the spring and summer between Sitka-Juneau-Haines-Skagway and in Prince William Sound.

Kennicott Roomette Prices Lowered!!

Kennicott Roomettes are priced for value!! Our rates for these special rooms on the M/V Kennicott are priced to sell. Both inside and outside two-berth roomettes are available all year. Our rates reflect the discount for these rooms, which feature facing seats during the day and upper/lower berths at night. Bring your own bedding or rent sheets and blankets at a reasonable rate from the purser. Baths are located down the hall. These are available only on the M/V Kennicott, traveling to various ports between Prince Rupert, BC and Whittier, AK (near Anchorage) when you make your reservation request online.

Traveler's Advisory

Federal Coast Guard Regulations require that all passengers traveling on Alaska Ferries anywhere from Bellingham and/or crossing the Gulf of Alaska must provide the following information:

  • Full Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Citizenship

Passengers from ALL ports are advised of the following:

  • All adult passengers must present government-issued photo identification prior to boarding the vessel.
  • Noncommercial, unaccompanied vehicles must consent to a search of the vehicle prior to boarding the vessel.
  • Baggage cart access is limited to ticketed passengers only.
  • Visitors will not be permitted aboard AMHS vessels unless escorted by AMHS personnel.
  • Every vehicle will be checked for hazardous materials.
  • Unattended baggage will not be permitted in terminal buildings.
  • Passengers transiting through various border check points are advised they should expect increased scrutiny and possible delays. Identification will be checked, and a passport is now required for entry back into the USA if you go to Canada.
