The Alaska ferry system boasts a fleet like no other and connections like no other. It is a true marine highway, designated an “All-American Road” by the Federal Highway Administration. For 50 years, these ferries have linked villages and towns of coastal Alaska to the road system and to each other. Alaska’s ferries hold stories triumphant and tragic. Luckily for the marine highway, most of its tales have been victories, an affirmation of its connections to the people and to the last Frontier.
