The Alaska state ferry system is officially called the Alaska Marine Highway. Ferry travel can be a great economical option for cruises to many of Alaska's coastal communities, with Canada and Washington State connections as well. Destinations and schedules are extensive so it you plan to travel to Alaska by ferry the best bet is to check out the alaska state ferry home page. Plan early, advance reservations are required and most ferry cruises sell out quickly.
