June sailings for the M/V Tustumena have been cancelled, the Alaska Marine Highway System announced last week. The Tustumena will not return to service until July. The Tustumena has been undergoing repairs and retrofitting since last November, and had been scheduled to return to service in April. Unexpected repair items, including steel work, pushed that date to the end of May, but that work now isn’t expected to be done until July 4, the AMHS said in a press release.
Sailings for the Tustumena have been canceled from June 4 to July 6, with the new sailing schedule staring July 7, departing Homer to Seldovia. Included in the canceled sailing are two runs to the Aleutian Chain. The M/V Kennicott will be making an Aleutian Chain run in late May. Updated schedules are available online at ferryalaska.com.
