Ketchikan, Alaska - The M/V Prince of Wales will be serving between Ketchikan and Metlakatla, in addition to daily round-trip service between Hollis and Ketchikan, effective January 9, 2010 and until further notice. We have agreed to provide round-trip service daily except Tuesday and Wednesday, during the period when the Alaska Marine Highway's M/V Lituya is out of service for scheduled maintenance, said Inter-Island Ferry Authority's general manager Bruce Jones.

The IFA ferry will depart Ketchikan at 11:30am, arriving Metlakatla at 2:00pm (Metlakatla time), and depart Metlakatla at 2:30pm (Metlakatla time), arriving Ketchikan at 3:00pm. Fares charged by the IFA will be the same as published for the M/V Lituya, including free transportation for the driver of a vehicle, effective January through April. Full restaurant service will be available aboard the M/V Prince of Wales.

The Inter-Island Ferry Authority has also announced that the driver of a vehicle traveling on the Ketchikan-Hollis and Ketchikan-Metlakatla routes will not be charged the passenger fare, on all sailings between January 1 and April 30, 2010.
