The Alaska Marine Highway System has begun a special schedule
for the M/V Chenega/ providing service between Juneau and Sitka, and
Juneau, Haines and Skagway, which will continue through mid-April. M/V
Chenega is filling in for the M/V Fairweather on these routes, while
Fairweather is in Ketchikan for maintenance on its engines.
Chenega will make a round trip between Juneau and Sitka on
Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The trip from Juneau to Sitka is
approximately four and a half hours on the fast ferry. Due to tides in
Sergius Narrows, some departure and arrival times will vary.
On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays the vessel will depart Juneau to
provide service to Haines and Skagway. The fast ferry makes the trip
from Juneau to Haines in only two hours and forty-five minutes. On each
of these days, Chenega will provide 30-minute shuttle trips
between Haines and Skagway.
Chenega will also make one
Juneau-Haines roundtrip on Mondays.
