Inter-Island Ferry Authority COVID-19 Protocol
In these unprecedented times, the IFA is taking a proactive approach to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by trying to balance the travel needs of Communities with the CDC and DHSS precautions and Health Mandates, Orders and Alerts. We are practicing 6′ social distancing, wearing face coverings and using CDC recommended disinfecting procedures.
In order to facilitate Social Distancing on board the vessel, we’ve reduced our normal passenger capacity which means that passenger space is limited. Please make your reservations in advance and arrive early to ensure your space on-board.
The IFA’s top priority is the health and safety of anyone boarding our vessels and entering our terminals as the novel COVID-19 Coronavirus continues to impact all of us. Your cooperation in following Crew and Agent directions at all times is greatly appreciated. Please check-in early to allow for these additional check-in measures. Be safe, travel smart!

Hollis, Alaska – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued an Order Under Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act requiring persons to wear proper face coverings when using public transportation systems to help reduce the introduction, transmission and spread of COVID-19. Beginning February 1, 2021 at 11:59 PM, the Inter-Island Ferry Authority (IFA) is mandated to require persons 2 years and older to wear proper face coverings when using our facilities and when traveling on our vessels.
