In anticipation of the return to service for MV Tustumena, MV LeConte, MV Kennicott and MV Matanuska, The Alaska Marine Highway Service has released schedules for the vessels.

According to an AMHS press release, starting June 2nd, the

MV Tustumena

MV LeConte

Starting June 25, the

MV Kennicott

MV Matanuska

The Alaska Marine Highway Service says on June 7, the

MV Tazlina

will discontinue service and remain in Auke Bay. Also, AMHS says "Due to reduced travel demand, it is not feasible for AMHS to operate the MV Columbia at this time."
