Alaska Ferry Space Sells Out Quickly

Alaska Ferry Space Sells Out Quickly

If thinking about travelling in Alaska this summer, it would be wise to book before May so that you can secure the vehicle and cabin space you think you will need.

Remember that if transporting weapons in your vehicle, you may want to avoid travel through Canada as hand guns and automatic / semi automatic weapons are not legal in Canada and will likely be confiscated. When entering Alaska from the Lower 48, the only way to avoid going through Canada is either by air, or by using the cross-gulf ferry to Whittier, Homer or Valdez. (See the Alaska route map on ferrytravel.com Driving the Alcan highway is not an option for anyone with either weapons or a DUI because it does not avoid a quick entry into Canada.

With only 10 sailings in either directions each year, summer ferry space to Whittier is usually sold out before April.

(Whittier ferry service is only 2x per month beginning in April & ending in September)
