Port of Skagway

          With its strategic location and deep-water, ice-free port, the Port of Skagway is an all-year transportation hub.  State of Alaska ferries almost daily bring vehicles headed north up the Klondike Highway to interior Alaska and northwest Canada.  In-bound petroleum products and general cargo pass through the port.  Out-bound ore concentrates and logging products arrive at the port ready for shipment all over the world.  Special shipments of heavy equipment and machinery pass through on their way to the northern mining industry.  Alaska Marine Lines provides weekly barge service from Seattle.

          Skagway's various docks are operated by the White Pass & Yukon Route, the State of Alaska and the Municipality of Skagway.  A general cargo-barge facility as well as a small boat harbor with individual assigned stalls for 103 boats up to 42 feet in length and transient docking facilities up to a maximum of 130 feet are available.
