Rainforest Islands Ferry
Scheduled to begin service in 2015

Four times a week, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, beginning in 2015, the Rainforest Islands Ferry’s new public passenger/vehicle service will connect Wrangell, Petersburg – via South Mitkof – and Prince of Wales Island – via Coffman Cove. Departing every Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.

This reliable, comfortable, and scenic ferry service is facilitated by completion and paving of highways to/from ferry landings at Coffman Cove and South Mitkof. Mini-coach service connecting with ferry arrivals and departures will be provided on Prince of Wales Island, Wrangell, and Mitkof Island enabling highway transits by ferry passengers without vehicles, including passengers with carry-on kayaks and canoes. In addition to baggage service for passengers, the ferry and mini-coaches will carry parcel express throughout the service area.

The Rainforest Islands Ferry will feature lounge and coffee shop seating, and will offer food and beverage service.
