We are two couples arriving to Vancover May 2012 and wish to travel to Anchorage on the Marine Highway Ferrys. We do not want a Cruise Ship. Our time is approx 12 days. We live in New Zealand and have been finding it hard to get good advice on places to stay overnight, hotels to stay in overnnight, choosing what places to stay and how long, mixing staying on the ferry overnight and on land. We also asked for a flight Anchorage to Dutch Harbour and quoted $900.00 - seems a bit steep - or is it?
From Anchorage we will overland to Fort Nelson where our son works. (He is not familiar with this area so no info from him)
Any assistance / advice for the four Kiwis would be greatly appreciated.
