Book ferry travel early or be left
The Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS) said that its Port Efficiency Policy will go in effect June 1.
The new policy states that an AMHS ferry will bypass a port call if there is no scheduled traffic destined into or out of that particular port. Scheduled traffic is defined as a reservation in place 24 hours in advance of the scheduled departure time from the port in question.
Travelers are encouraged to make reservations in advance.
