State of Alaska Covid-19 Information
Southeast Alaska has been a leader in the state with high vaccination rates and low case numbers. This has allowed our communities to safely welcome back travelers. Please remember to follow state, city, and community covid guidelines during your visit, as many of our communities have limited access to healthcare. For more information and data on vaccination rates and case numbers please visit the State of Alaska’s Department of Health and Social Services Covid-19 page.
Traveler Covid-19 Information
Alaska is now offering unvaccinated travelers the opportunity for free pre-travel testing and free vaccinations at participating airports. When visiting Southeast you can receive a free vaccine at the Juneau International Airport and free testing in Sitka, Ketchikan, Petersburg, Wrangell, and Yakutat. Visit Alaska’s Safe Travels page for more information on city and state travel guidelines.
Getting here is part of the adventure
Take the time to travel by sea on The Alaska Marine Highway System.
Southeast Alaska is made up of islands, inlets, and very few major roads. Cruising to your destination by ferry is the ultimate scenic route when traveling Southeast Alaska. With ports in 13 Southeast communities and routes starting as far as Bellingham, ferries are the ideal transport for taking in the beauty of Southeast Alaska’s pristine coastline. For a more catered experience, there are also many opportunities to travel by small cruise ship throughout Southeast Alaska. Please visit the Alaska Marine Highway System website for more information.
