The maximum height for an RV is 13 ft and the maximum length is approximately 70 ft. There are also 3 width categories, standard (up to 8 ft 5in), wide (8 ft 6 in to 8 ft 11 in) and extra wide (over 9 ft). Wide and extra wide vehicles are subject to a surcharge.
All propane tanks must be turned off when traveling on any ferry. Terminal agents will seal any bottled gas containers before boarding. Small portable containers of fuel (5 gallons or less and limited to 2 containers) must be properly sealed, labelled with the owner’s name for ID, and stored by AMHS while on route.
If traveling from another state, pets must have a health certificate not more than 30 days old. Alaska Marine charges $25 per pet entering or exiting Alaska through Bellingham and $10 per pet through Prince Rupert.
There is no charge for pets traveling on BC Ferries.
While on-board, pets must stay on the vehicle deck but can be visited, fed & given water at regular intervals. Entry to the car deck is controlled by the ships purser.
The cost of a journey on the Alaska Marine highway varies based on the distance you are traveling, the vehicle you are bringing and whether or not you are booking a cabin.
For example, the cost for two people traveling from Prince Rupert to Skagway with a 2-berth cabin and a 19-foot RV would be $1036 ($382 for 2 passengers, $183 for a 2-berth cabin and $471 for the RV).
