Alaska Highway Ferry GPS track out there??

Does anyone out there have a GPS track of the Haines to Bellingham ferry? I wasn't able to keep my Garmin Zumo on for this segment of my trip to the Arctic Ocean and back.

Alternatively, does anyone have a detailed route map of this ferry route so that I can try to create a GPX file from it??

Thanks for any assistance or new ideas!!

I just took the July 5th Ferry down from Haines. Great trip. I had my Zumo working for a bit but a 4 hr battery means trouble on a 3 day 4 night trip. My spot did Ok but all that steel is a problem if you are below decks at all.

Ferry goes places the cruise ships do not go unless you are on a real small one. Great trip....and we needed a rest bad.



I know there are maps with the Ferry route but I do not access right now as I am out of town for a bit.

We sailed from Haines via Juneau, Sitka, Petersburg, Wrangel, Ketchikan and finally to Bellingham. Microsoft Street and Strips 2010 will route accurately on the Marine Alaskan Highway though.

if you Garmin's BaseCamp, it knows about the ferry routes

I used basecamp to define routes for my ride to Alaska. If you create a route from Haines to Prince Rupert, it will route the path along the ferry route.

Here's an example (zoom in to Haines)

As I am planning the same ferry trip in late July, I was experimenting and directions in Google Maps will in fact route you down the ferry lanes.
