Alaska Marine Highway

The Alaska Marine Highway (AMH) or the Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS) are a network of ferry lines connecting destinations along the southern coast of Alaska and going all the way down to Bellingham (Washington). It provides a connection to many island and island-like communities, including the Alaskan state capital Juneau which is accessible only by boat or plane despite being located on the mainland. The AMH is also an alternative to the long drive through Canada for overland travel between the lower 48 states and Alaska, and can be a more affordable (if decidedly less luxurious) way to witness some of the same rugged coastal scenery that Alaskan cruises take in.
