The Alaska Marine Highway System has been in operation since 1963. Our vessels provide passenger and vehicle service to over 30 communities in Alaska, many of which are not accessible via the road system.

The system covers 3,500 miles of coastline that stretches from Bellingham, WA to Dutch Harbor in the Aleutian Chain.
