Ferry out of service - help appreciated

Plan was to take the Fairweather Ferry on 6/26 from Juneau to Sitka and it will not be running. Do need to still travel this day and would rather travel via boat than air- Anyone heard of new alternatives?

At last report, you'll probably need to change your date of travel if you really want to travel via boat. The Fairweather is not due to be operational and the LeConte is moving to day boat service that will not include a Juneau Sitka run. Alaska Air is your next best bet as there is no other boat traffic between the two. However, do recheck with the ferry office at ferryalaska.com as they are considering different options.

Is the Fairweather going to be out of operation all summer or just that day? We are taking the Fairweather to Sitka from Juneau 7/12. Might this pose a problem?

Last I heard, it was due back by July 1.......if you have confirmed reservations, the ferry staff should contact you by phone to reschedule, if that date changes again......that's what they did with us last month.......will sure be nice when that ferry is back running....
