Sea freight arrives in False Pass on one of the Coastal Transportation, Inc. boats from Seattle on a twice-monthly basis. Seattle is the primary supply center for False Pass and other Aleutian communities and there is excellent freight service for the shipment of all manner of goods. Connections to False Pass from other points in Alaska is primarily via air unless charter arrangements are made for sea freight.
From the founding of False Pass until about 1971, the Alaska Steamship Co. provided regular sea freight service. Then, after Alaska Steam went out of business, the Western Pioneer Lines provided service until about 1985. Then, Coastal Transportation, Inc. took over and is currently providing excellent sea freight service from Seattle every two weeks. For more information on this service, please click here.
