Once you get to Haines, a car will be unnecessary for most able-bodied participants. Arrivals denoted with astericks indicate those where we'll pick you up and get you to your hotel, otherwise you can call Haines Shuttle or use the Lyft app.

Alaska Seaplanes

Multiple departures; weather and fog can be a factor. For this reason, we strongly encourage you to consider taking the Alaska Marine Highway System ferry, at least to get here.

Alaska Marine Highways System

Ferry connects Juneau and Skagway to Haines.

We've been in touch with Capt. Falvey and intend to have some pre-conference convos on board to warm you up for the conference.

Get to conference Sept. 7 on the LeConte

*JNU: AMHS, departs Juneau 7 a.m. arrives Haines 12:15 p.m.*

SGY: AMHS, departs Skagway 2:45 p.m. arrives 4:15 p.m.

If you take AMHS from Skagway, you will miss the opening sessions of the Summit so we recommend taking the Fast Ferry.

SGY: AMHS departs for Skagway at 4:30 AM (Matanuska) or 12:15 PM (LeConte)

JNU: AMHS departs for Juneau 11:15 AM (Matanuska) or 4:15 PM (LeConte)

Haines-Skagway Fast Ferry

On Sept. 7, we recommend the *10 a.m. ferry*; when we last checked, that sailing had 12 seats available. There's only sprinkling of seats available on the other sailings so reserve sooner than later..

On Sept. 9 conference will conclude mid-afternoon.
