It’s November–and Alaska’s Marine Highway has dropped its prices by 30 percent for “mirror image roundtrip itineraries”.
If you have not yet sailed on the ferry, stop what you’re doing and make plans to do so right now! Click here to see a map. Here in south-central Alaska, you can sail from Whittier or Valdez over to Cordova. Or, sail from Whittier or Homer over to Kodiak. I like Kodiak!
You have more year-round options for ferry travel down in southeast Alaska. Take the leisurely 787-mile drive from Anchorage to Haines, then sail the last 60 miles to Juneau. HEY! I’ve done it. It’s a great ride! Or, if you’re in Juneau, you can take the fast ferry over to Petersburg. Stay at the Tides Inn. Rent a car from Avis. Say “Hi” to Gloria for me (she owns the place) and tell her I saw her daughter Becky who made me PROMISE to come and visit!! Not kidding!! From Juneau, it’s also easy to access Sitka–one of my favorite ports.
Ketchikan, Prince Rupert, Bellingham–the whole system is on sale between now and March, 2010! THIRTY percent off!
The sale applies to adults, children and vehicles. Roundtrip only. No discounts on cabins, tho’. Plus: if you’re bringing a vehicle on board, the driver goes FREE.
