Alaska Ferry To Be Pulled From Service

As a result of a vessel inspection showing that the M/V Malaspina needs about $16 million worth of repairs, she will be pulled from service in December and will be stored in Ketchican until a decision about her future can be made. 

As there isn’t enough money in the Alaska ferry system’s budget to cover the repair costs, no long term decisions for the ferry have been made.   

DOT spokesperson Meadow Bailey says the current sailing schedule will not be impacted.

Alaska Ferries Resume Prince Rupert Sailings

AMHS Sailings to Prince Rupert will begin again in Oct. 29 and Nov. 25.

Reservations are now available for booking at www.ferrytravel.com or by calling the the Reservations Center at 1-800-686-0446

Alaska Governor Michael J. Dunleavy stated that “The State of Alaska recognizes that the AMHS presence in Prince Rupert is important & we are committed to maintaining this route if it’s logistically and fiscally feasible.”

Future sailings to Prince Rupert will depend on factors that include the necessary financial investment & the long-term requirements of the Canadian Border Patrol.


Event Pricing In Effect for Alaska Ferries



Other fare changes include event pricing (a 10% increase for special events at a specific port) and change fees, which go up as the travel date approaches.

Greening The Washington Ferry Fleet





"The new hybrid vessels will benefit from an Olympic class hull form which has less drag through the water and a small wake for a positive environmental impact.
They will be capable of 100% electric operation on most routes once the infrastructure needed for charging is installed.
Over the life of the vessels, a 94% reduction in carbon emissions is anticipated along with the added benefit of significantly reduced operating costs for the ferry system".

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.
