While we do not recommend this route for pet owners because you cannot always be with your pet, here is some information about taking a ferry with your dog from Vancouver to Alaska. First take a BC Ferry from Port Hardy to Prince Ruppert via the Inside Passage. The ferry ride is about 15 hours. Dogs are allowed on the car decks and pet owners are not allowed to stay with their pets. You can still visit your pet about 4 to 5 times during the day only when crew members designate certain visiting times. From Prince Rupert in Canada to Seward in Alaska, you will need to take an Alaska State Ferry. This route takes about 4 days. Pets are required to have current health certificates within 30 days of travel. Pets must remain in your car or in your carrier, on the car decks only. People are not allowed to stay with their pets. The captain will announce "pet calls" so pet owners can take their pets out for a short walk onboard in the designated pet area. While there are usually three pet visitation times per day, it is entirely up to the captain. The captain's decision is based on the weather and other factors. On both ferries, there is a designated pet area where your pets can relieve themselves. Owners must clean up after their pets. Guide dogs and certified assistance dogs are not required to stay on the car decks.
