Whittier port to Anchorage airport transfer

has anyone used the 3 hours tour + transfer operated by an independent company for the transfer? It is only $35 including a stop at the anchorage culture center for 45 minutes. Comparing the cruiseline transfer of $78, it seems to be a great deal. Just not sure if these companies are reliable?

Welcome to TA. Which company? Look at the BBB ratings since one or more of these companies gets an F rating. You can also do a search here on the Alaska forum for the company in question.

My guess is that "cheap" is not always "inexpensive."

Depending on your cruise line there are chartered trains that run from the airport to Seward. We have no other information.

And, some advice as we are experienced cruisers. Do not plan on arriving on your departure day, but rather a day or two earlier. When we were greeting the Regatta Thursday a couple of passengers arrived via Era from Anchorage as they missed their connections in Anchorage. Fortunately, all they missed was only the first night of their cruise

We saw the same thing in Buenos Aires three years ago when we did an Antarctic cruise. Some passengers from the U.K. got held up and missed the cruise. And, the wx on that cruise couldn't have been better.
