I have done the Alcan twice and am ready to go back to AK. I want to take the ferry this time going up, just to see some new country. I'm looking for someone who has experiance riding the ferry systems. I have the option of going from Belingham, WA. or Port Hardy BC. Is one more affordable than the other? More options? Is there a way to get on and off when you want, or do you have to stay with the same ferry the whole trip? Probably going first part of July. Any and all info welcome.
