Alaska Marine Highway

We will be traveling in a 31 foot motor home. Will we be able to take the Alaska Maring Highway from Wittier to Valdez with size motor home?

Yes, but it is very expensive. You will be paying per foot length on the RV. More info can be found on their website . . . http://www.dot.state.ak.us/amhs/index.shtml .

Did a quick check and if I am seeing it right. The cost of the 31 foot motor home would be $257.30 one way and each adult would be $89.00 each for a total of $435.30 for a one way Whittier to Valdez for you. This for a summer crossing.

Also, if you are senior citizen there is a passenger discount (not the RV), but not sure if available for non-Alaskans.

The senior discount is available for non-AK residents. Would save a bit, but something like $40 of that $400+ bill.

As for Senior rate, booked one last night and didn't ask for residency. I couldn't remember from last time

We have decided to book the ferry. Since it will cost us around $200,00 to drive there with a 31' motor home, we might as well pay another $200.00 and enjoy the ride and scenery.
