    The Alaska Marine Highway System

    The other way to get to Seldovia is by ferry, which is handled by the Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS). This boat only goes by Seldovia twice a week, on Sunday and Tuesday afternoon, so it is not ideal for all your travel needs. ut if you take it, it is a nice adventure. It takes longer than flying, but it gives you a chance to look out over the glaciers that nestle among the Kenai Mountains. It is less expensive than flying as well, and the fact that it is a large ship enables you to take your automobile, plus luggage... the smaller planes that fly back and forth are restricted by weight.

    Departure time from Homer: 12:00pm Sunday and Tuesday
    Arrival time in Seldovia: 1:30pm
    Cost (one-way): $33.00

    There are only 2 ways in or out of Seldovia: water and air. For air transport, the easiest and rather efficient way to get to Seldovia is from Homer, via Homer Air. This little outfit takes you on a small Cesna-like shuttle (not sure if that is the exact plane, but a 6-person capacity, single-prop plane) from Homer airport to the small Seldovia airport. It is handy, running not on a hard schedule but as flights are needed. It is an easy 15-20 minute ride, and you get gorgeous views of the peninsula as you head between.

    Price one-way: $45

    You only take a boat or fly to Seldovia. The three main boats are the M/V Tustumena Ferry, M/V Discovery and M/V Rainbow (in order of size). Since the weather was windy and the waves large, my M/V Discovery cruise got cancelled and I flew over on Smokey Bay Air. It is only one of the several air charter services available. It uses the small airport in Seldovia, which only has a gravel runaway. Smokey Bay Air was reliable and cost $35 each way from Homer.

    I drove 4 1/2 hrs from Anchorage to Homer, then caught a 2hr wildlife boat trip guided by the captain and we watched birds of many varieties, a sealion, seaotter. Then arrived at the pier and a short walk up to the hotel. Then the following day, the owner of the hotel drove me to the airport and I caught a beautiful 1/2 plane ride thru the Harding Glacier, thru mtns in which I thought the wing tip was going to hit the mtn and we were able to see the other side of the Aleutian chain to the Gulf of Alaska and back down the glacier across Kachemak Bay and into Homer for the 4 1/4 hr drive back home to Anchorage.
