A new port for the Cruise lines.

Whittier is a small town of about 400 residents located on the western edge of Prince William Sound in south central Alaska. Whittier was established during world war two as a military supply port.

Recently, a number cruise lines have begun to use Whittier as a departure port for their Gulf of Alaska Cruises. Whittier is only 62 road miles southeast of Anchorage making it ground transfers quicker than Seward. One of the unique features of Whittier is that it is separated from Alaska’s road system by a 2.5 mile long tunnel that is shared by alternating one-way auto and railroad traffic.
