Alaska Marine Gets Serious About Ferry Fares






Alaska Ferries Adopt Dynamic Pricing



In the case of the Alaska Marine ferries, the company has  set the bar at 30%.
This means that once 30% of the available space on an Alaska ferry has been sold, the basic fares  (passenger / vehicle and cabin) will all rise: and they will continue to rise as much as 50% over the basic cost, as the ferry fills.

To better serve displaced passengers, calls will answered from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. this Saturday & Sunday.
Due to the high volume of calls, it may take time to connect with a customer service representative. Passengers may also call ferry terminals if hold times are too long at the call center.

Alaska Ferry Passengers Fraud Targets
