Nice Ferry Ride to Seldovia. The captain looked for sealife on the way out and despite it being a ferry would slow down and wait to see if we could catch a glimpse of the whales (we did). One time and easy ride to Seldovia....More

We took the Ferry over to Seldovia Bay to spend the afternoon. Could not believe how clean and well maintained it was, and the staff were all super friendly. They offered free coffee and cold drinks. And when humpback whales were spotted, we slowed and...More

The $80 RT fare is well worth the price! Great views of Katchemak Bay, lots of marine wildlife - otters, silver salmon jumping and even Orca whales. Seldovia is quaint and renting bikes is the way to see a lot. The ferry crew was gracious...More

We got to see orcas so close,on our drive to and from Seldovia,. Seldovia is beautiful very quiet no noise.very touristy, due to the time we spent seeing the orcas didn't get much time in Seldovia. No regrets.

We went from homer to Seldovia for a birthday trip. The ferry is large and has adequate seating and bathrooms. The views are amazing as well and if there happens to be whales they will slow down.
