Rainforest Islands Ferry Service delayed


Submitted Photo

The M/V Rainforest Islander is set to sail for the first time under Rainforest Islands Ferry Service June 28.

The new Rainforest Islands Ferry Service, providing travel between Petersburg, Wrangell and Coffman Cove, has been delayed again.

Set to begin June 14, service is now expected to start June 28 instead.

Heather Hedges, who does advertising and marketing for Rainforest Islands Ferry, said the delay is due to a wait on Coast Guard certification.

The ferry, a 65-foot landing craft called the Rainforest Islander, will provide service four days a week year round: Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

Rainforest Islands will also provide a mini-coach shuttle service on the islands it serves.
