For those of you that have never been to Haines and are wondering how to get there, here is the scoop!

You can fly or take a boat from Juneau or drive from Fairbanks or Anchorage.
Drive: From Fairbanks takes 12 plus hours through Canada.
From Anchorage takes 14 plus hours through Canada.
Fly/Boat: fly into Juneau and take one of the following options:

Allen Marine Tours – AML has secured a charter from Juneau to Haines –leaving Juneau Tuesday at 2 pm and then a return charter from Haines to Juneau on Friday leaving Haines at 8 am arriving in Juneau at 11:00a.m.. See agenda for details. This will allow folks to fly into Juneau on the earlier flights (Tuesday) and leave Juneau on afternoon flights (Friday). We realize this will not work for everyone. The cost for this charter is $100/Round trip/person. Use the option on the registration form or call the AML office to book a seat on this charter.
Transportation will be provided to and from airport and Auke Bay.

Below are some other options.
Fly – Juneau to Haines- many flights daily for about $250/round trip/person

Alaska Marine Highway – There is only one sailing early in the morning so you would have to come in a day earlier. The cost is about $100/round trip plus the cost of a hotel room in Juneau.
