Hit the beach for summer fun!

With over 30,000 miles of shoreline Alaska is full of secret, and not-so-secret, beaches and coves that offer the perfect opportunity for a variety of activities. From sea kayaking, paddle boarding, surfing or tide pooling where you'll find a variety of unique critters. What better way to access the best beach front recreational areas than through the communities along the Alaska Marine Highway? Or just ask the locals about their favorite hiking trails that lead to hidden coves or pristine beaches where you can find solitude or simply enjoy the sound of the surf and fresh ocean air while you view birds and sea life playing among the waves.

The AMHS fleet includes ships in a variety of sizes, some able to carry as many as 500 passengers and 100 vehicles. With the ferry you can visit dozens of unique communities and areas of Alaska not accessible via the road system. Walk on board or bring a car, truck, motorcycle or other means of transport, such as kayaks and bicycles. Bringing a vehicle lets you combine a driving vacation with the ferry and access areas you might otherwise miss. Booking multiple legs of travel on different ferries will allow for more time in each community and more time to view the scenery.
