Whittier is located on the northeast shore of the Kenai Peninsula on the west side of Prince William Sound and at the head of Passage Canal
Travellers headed north by ferry from Washington State to Anchorage, Fairbanks & Denali National Park can board an Alaska ferry in Bellingham WA or Prince Rupert BC Canada and travel across the gulf to Whittier, Homer & Valdez.
For military transfers to Fort Richardson & Fort Wainright taking the ferry from Washington to Whittier is the more popular route choice as the Bellingham WA to Haines AK ferry route involves a drive on of some 650-750 miles to the bases
Reservations for all ferries (& especially the Whittier ferry) in & to Alaska must be made well in advance as the cross - gulf ferries to Whittier, Valdez & Homer sail only 2x per month so space on those ferries sells out quickly.
From Whittier to Anchorage is about 75 miles by road. Note that it is important to ensure the tunnel is open so you do not find yourself searching for unplanned accommodation in Whittier.
