The State of Alaska continues to operate under an annual budget deficit of over $3.5 billion. This has created uncertainty in the operating budgets for many state agencies from year-to-year, which includes the Alaska Marine Highway System. As a result, the release of the summer 2017 sailing schedule has been delayed. The proposed FY18 budget is statutorily required to be made public on or before December 15, 2016. AMHS will develop the summer 2017 sailing schedule as soon as we have budget information on which to base that schedule. The schedule development process, which includes public involvement, typically takes 4 to 6 weeks. Announcements will be made when the draft summer schedule is available for review and when the schedule is finalized and available for booking.
Our Sailing Calendar is designed to provide you with vessel and schedule information in a monthly calendar format. You can search arrivals and departures for each day of the month, by port or for a specific vessel. The more information you specify the more focused your results. If you would like even further details, just click on a specific sailing and the full routing for that vessel sailing will appear.
Colored Schedule Grids
The Colored Schedule Grids also present information for a region or vessel by month but allows you to see the entire sailing route. Just choose the month you need and the region in which you're interested. Vessel names will head each row and ports for the selected region will head each column. Familiarize yourself with the vessel colors and schedule key and read the information in a grid pattern. Ports and vessels may appear on more than one grid due to service overlaps.
