The Alaska Marine Highway System won't be travelling south past Ketchikan for the next few weeks with the Transportation service pulling the MV Kennicott out of service temporarily owing to mechanical issues.

The Kennicott will head for dry dock upon its arrival in Ketchikan, where it is expected to remain until sometime in Mid November.

With the Kennicott out of service, the Alaska Marine Highway has announced that service to Prince Rupert will be suspended until the vessel returns to service.

AMHS customer service agents are attempting to contact all affected passengers to assist them in rescheduling their travel plans.

Passengers heading North of Ketchikan will be accommodated on the MV Columbia.

Those with travel plans to Alaska can contact AMHS at 1-800-642-0066

More background on the service disruption can be found from this announcement.
