Ok as you know I am going to Kodiak, My Mom is stressing out on how she will come to visit & doesn't wanna fly..... I have been trying to check out the ferry system but I can't figure out where she goes from Bellingham Wa to Kodiak... Is there a way she can get a train into Ak then a ferry to Kodiak? Or is there a ferry she can take from Bellingham to WHERE then to Kodiak? Please help me as the ferry schedual messes me up She would leave early Aug.


Any help is good.

It would be just much easier for her to fly. Otherwise a 12 hour trip will turn into a week long trip.

Noo, she is sooo afraid of flying.. She would have to be very sedated or very drunk lol. I was just trying to figure out if there was like a train into Canada then ferry to Kodiak. Or a ferry from Bellingham to somewhere in Ak. then one to Kodiak. But the only one I could find had a 8day lay over lol. Oh well

Just load her up with some daquiris and have someone pour her on the plane; she'll be just fine. Make sure you tell her to watch out for the TSA thieves.

If she takes a ferry ride to Kodiak on a rough day she will think flying is a piece of cake.
