Go to the Alaska Marine Highway System web site and look at the schedule for Kodiak.
from the web….
“The Alaska Marine Highway System provides passenger and vehicle service to Kodiak and Port Lions aboard the M/V Tustumena or the M/V Kennicott from Homer or Whittier. Staterooms, full-service dining rooms, solarium and public shower are available. Make reservations well in advance, particularly if you plan to bring a vehicle. For reservations, call 800-642-0066. Also see the Alaska Marine Highway listing in the business directory for more information. ”
I don’t think that you can take a ferry from Washington State. What you can do, if you have a car, is ferry from Bellingham to Haines, then drive to Homer or Whittier. If you are not bringing a car, it will probably be cheaper to fly. If you are thinking that you want to bring a lot of stuff, like in your car or pulling a trailer, compare the cost of putting it on the ferry with sending it with a freight company from Seattle. There are freight consolidators who will ship your belongings by barge to Kodiak. Your best bet is to talk to whoever is hiring you and ask them for advice.
