Inside Passage, Alaska

The Inside Passage of Alaska's Panhandle that fronts the Pacific Ocean and Canada's British Columbia includes an estimated 1,000 islands, 15,000 miles of shoreline and thousands of coves and bays.

Ships using the route can avoid some of the bad weather in the open ocean and may visit some of the many isolated communities along the route.

The Inside Passage is heavily travelled by cruise ships, freighters, tugs with tows, fishing craft and ships of the Alaska Marine Highway, BC Ferries, and Washington State Ferries systems.

The scenery along the route is typical Alaska; crisp, clean water, trees everywhere, as well as a scattering of islands, hills and mountains, both small and large.
