Q&A: Anyone traveled the Alaska Marine Highway (Ferry) in winter?

Question by Denali Rose: Anyone traveled the Alaska Marine Highway (Ferry) in winter?
I’m hoping to go to Washington this winter from Alaska without flying. I know the summer ferry trips are gorgeous, but are the winter trips worth it? Or is it too dark and cold?

They’re cold as hell!!! But, you get what you pay for, so the more you spend the more comfort you’ll be in on the Ferry. I lived in Alaska for 16 years.

    Cold, yes, but still quite beautiful. Note that only the northern part of Alaska is beset with darkness through the winter. Days are admittedly shorter, but you’ll still have plenty of light. I have found that the winter trips tend to be more rocky.

    Take seasick pills and lots of reading material 🙂
