Alaska Marine Highway The Alaska Marine Highway or the Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS) is a ferry service operated by the government of the U.S. state of Alaska. It has its headquarters in Ketchikan, Alaska.[5] The Alaska Marine Highway System is a rare example (in the USA) of a shipping line offering regularly scheduled service for the primary purpose of transportation rather than of leisure or entertainment. Voyages can last many days, but, in contrast to the luxury of a typical cruise line, cabins cost extra, and most food is served cafeteria-style. History[edit] AMHS vessels docked at Pier 48 in Seattle, 1975. The Alaska Marine Highway was founded in 1948 by Haines residents Steve Homer and Ray Gelotte,[2] who used a converted LCT-Mark VI landing craft which they christened the MV Chilkoot.[1] Their business was purchased by the territorial government in 1951 and renamed the Alaska Marine Highway System by the state government in 1963.
