Lituya to Cover Two Sailings per Week in October for the IFA

From the IFA: 

AMHS (Lituya) to cover 2 SAILINGS per WEEK in OCTOBER 2020 for IFA (Stikine)


The Inter-Island Ferry Authority vessel M/V Stikine will undergo propulsion system repairs during the month of October 2020.  Consequently, all IFA sailings are cancelled until November 1, 2020. If you had a reservation to travel with the IFA during the month of October, we had to cancel your reservations. If you have already paid, you can get a refund or leave it as an Open Credit to be used later.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  

The Alaska Marine Highway system has agreed to add sailings to provide transportation between Prince of Wales Island and Ketchikan. The M/V Lituya will be providing 2 sailings per week. The Lituya’s vehicle capacity is roughly 35% less than the Stikine and passenger capacity is roughly 25% less. The reduced capacities and reduced number of sailings per week equates into less transit opportunities.  If you are able to reschedule your travel for after October 31, 2020, it will allow the IFA to make sure that all critical transportation needs are met. 

We will begin taking reservations for the temporary Lituya schedule starting Saturday morning, October 3, 2020 at 7am. It will be a first ‘call’ first served basis.   There are simply too many people booked throughout the month of October to try to develop a priority list.
