The IFA offers daily, round-trip service between Hollis, located on Prince of Wales Island,  and Ketchikan, Alaska.  

The Inter-island Ferry Authority 
M/V Stikine or M/V Prince of Wales 
departs Hollis every morning at 8:00am and 
arrives in Ketchikan at 11:00am;  the ferry then 
leaves Ketchikan at 3:30pm the same day 
and arrives back in Hollis at 6:30pm.  

Hollis is a small community located on the east side of Prince of Wales Island and has limited services available.  Public transportation is not available to or from the ferry terminal without setting up a reservation.  Island Ride provides transport service with prior reservations.  Call for prices and reservations at 907-401-1414.  For more information regarding available transportation services please see our  Travel Planner pages.

The weather in SE Alaska, particularly during the months of October thru March, can be forceful and unpredictable.  Thirty to fifty knot winds and rain are common and infrequently cause delays in arrivals and/or departures and on very rare occasions may result in cancellation of a voyage.  Passenger safety is our foremost concern in all circumstances.

General information about Prince of Wales Island can be found in the "Prince of Wales Visitor's Guide" produced and available for download by the Prince of Wales Chamber of Commerce.
