Passengers must agree to wear the covering when they cannot maintain two metres (six feet) of physical separation from other people onboard.

Alaska Ferry Sailings Updates



Increased Sailings for Alaska Ferries

State Increases Alaska Ferry Budget

In early April, Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy signed a significantly increased budget for the Alaska ferry system.
With a budget injection of $108 million, 23 weeks of additional service has been made possible.  

In addition to increased Alaska ferry service, the budget injection includes funds to complete repairs on the M/V Aurora. The Aurora, together with her sister-ship the M/V LeConte, will return service to the northern panhandle and Prince William Sound.

It is the intention of the State of Alaska to provide both Alaskans & visitors to the state with a marine highway that is both reliable and predictable.
