I agree completely with Captain Art Johnson. I used to ride the ferries down to Seattle (at that time) frequently. I rarely do so anymore due to the cost. I would rather go to Prince Rupert and drive as it is cheaper and takes the same amount of time.

I can't understand what has happened to our Alaska Marine HIGHWAY, it seems to me that it is just trying to become another cruise line as it seems to only run in the summer. It used to be active during the winter. It is not supposed to be a money making outfit, are the highways in the lower 48 money generating things?

I wish they'd go back to the way they used to be as I do love to ride on the ferries. Just my 2 cents.
