Service Area

Kodiak is serviced by two AMHS vessels - the MV Tustumena year-round and the MV Kennicott in the summer. A quick four-hour drive from Anchorage, down the Kenai Peninsula, gets you to the embarkation port of Homer where your marine adventure begins with a nine-and-a-half hour ferry ride to Kodiak. A hub to the communities of Old Harbor, Ouzinkie, and Port Lions, Kodiak is also the first community visited on the Aleutian Chain run.
