While it's true you can't drive here, there are several other transportation options! And beautiful lodging once you arrive.
Wrangell is served by Alaska Airlines with Boeing 737 jets. Flight 65 is northbound from Seattle and departs around 7am daily arriving at 9:30am after a stop in Ketchikan. Flight 64 departs Anchorage at 12:45 and Juneau at 3:15 pm, arriving in Wrangell at 5:15 after a stop in Petersburg. These flights are also available with their codeshare partners.
The 2021 summer ferry schedule has been released with multiple sailings to and from Wrangell. Coming from the Lower 48, the best place to catch the ferry is from Bellingham, WA. The ride is about 700 miles long and takes 48 hrs. Wrangell is the first stop after Ketchikan. Alternately, if driving north, catch us on your southbound leg by boarding the ferry in Haines or Skagway. We’re the stop after Petersburg. (The ferry used to come regularly from Prince Rupert, B.C. but this route is not currently in operation).
Other options for getting to and from Wrangell include float planes and charter boats. Both are for shorter distances but are sometimes the best and certainly the most scenic way to get between smaller towns in Southeast Alaska. We recommend Sunrise Aviation out of Wrangell, Southeast Aviation out of Ketchikan, and Breakaway Adventures out of Wrangell as a water taxi/inter-island ferry service.
