We went from homer to Seldovia for a birthday trip. The ferry is large and has adequate seating and bathrooms. The views are amazing as well and if there happens to be whales they will slow down.

We had a very good trip from Homer to Seldovia on Sept 4, 2016 - departing at 6:30 PM. Enroute, the water was calm, the weather mostly clear, and we sighted two Orcas and may seabirds. The captain slowed to allow maximum viewing of the Orcas - but it did not last long. The return trip was equally calm -... More

I was so happy to be able to travel to Seldovia on the Ferry rather than a smaller vessel. I am not a good sailer and was anxious about getting from Homer to Seldovia without being motion sick and the ferry is the way to go! It's a large boat and I did not have a twinge of illness throughout... More

something different to do for sure. We flew a float plane in and ferried back...make it fun! there are small places to eat and neat to walk around...these folks are isolated unless they fly or ferry across the Bay....go so and imagine if you can live that life yourself?

We took this ferry because previous reviewers indicated that the Captain had stopped before to view whales if they were sighted. We didn't expect to be going slow enough to actually see any to stop but about 15 minutes into the trip the boat slowed down dramatically. There was a whale. I didn't get to see that one - he...

We experienced six foot waves on the trip from Homer to Seldovia. The captain knew how to ride the waves and the crew did a great job making sure passengers had what they needed and wiping up spills. For those unaffected by the turbulence, the coffee was great. The ride back the next day was over smooth water and seemed... More

We took the ferry to Seldovia for the day and were very pleased with the clean boat and friendly staff. Complimentary tea and coffee on board, clean bathrooms. The trip to Seldovia takes about 45 minutes, and we got to see otters along the way. The views are incredible and docks on both sides are sturdy and wheel chair accessible.
