Between Nov. 1, 2011 and Mar. 31, 2012, you can trim 30 percent off of your fare. The special discount applies to “Mirror Image” roundtrips. For example, Haines-Juneau-Haines or Homer-Kodiak-Homer. To the right, Kodiak photographer/innkeeper/naturalist/captain Marion Owen snapped this photo  of the Trusty Tusty (m/v Tustumena) sailing past her deck in Kodiak. 

Using this special program, you can save on adult tickets, kids’ ticket and accompanied drivable vehicles.  CLICK HERE to see the rules.

Alaska’s Marine Highway is a year-round transportation system, from the southern terminus at Bellingham, up through the Inside Passage to Prince Rupert, BC and into Alaska: Ketchikan, Metlakatla, Wrangell, Petersburg, Sitka and Juneau.  With cross-gulf sailings, the ferry system covers Prince William Sound (Whittier, Cordova and Valdez) and Kodiak, Homer and Seldovia.  The service out to the Aleutian Chain (from Kodiak all the way to Dutch Harbor) doesn’t run in the winter.
