I cannot say enough about the young man who spoke during our ferry ride to Haines!! He was very knowledgable and a gifted speaker made the ferry trip fascinating.

This ferry ride was beautifully picturesque with waterfalls and hillsides tumbling into the fiord. The ferry was stable, fast and had big windows for viewing. Wonderful way to get to our tour of the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve.

By pointing out the various glaciers, waterfalls and important...More

Fast ferry between Skagway and Haines. 8 miles up and down the picturesque fjord. Refreshments on board. We used it to get to the bald eagle reserve, others used it to get to the Haines beer festival.

When speed is what you need, this ferry will get you there the quickest. There is even a naturalist onboard explaining what is around.

Sometimes the journey is as much fun as the destination; this was one of those times. The ferry crossing was part of a shore excursion, and the scenery was beautiful. Crew was friendly, boarding was easily accessible (I walk with a cane), and the naturalist/storyteller...More

Took the fairway from the cruise port in Skagway to Haines. The water was quite choppy but the captain kept the boat steady and it didn't seem rough at all. Naturalist on the Ferry was very knowledgeable.

I'm not sure what you mean by t.v. If you are going to transport a tv there should be plenty of room for a small tv as far as connecting probably not.
