Haines Shuttle is owned and operated by Jonathan Richardson and Anthony Swaner and is the only shuttle/taxi in Haines. We have two 14-passenger vans and a trailer. We do our best to answer all calls and provide all services needed. We also load/unload unaccompanied vehicles at the ferry.
We provide a town shuttle at the Alaska Marine Highway System terminal (4.5 miles from town). During the summer season we meet every ferry arriving from Juneau whether or not we have had a call. We don't always meet every ferry arriving from Skagway if no one has requested a ride. If you need the shuttle and one is not already there, call or text us. If you need a pick-up in town to go to the ferry terminal, call or text.
One Way: A ride into town, or from town to the terminal, costs $10 per person. For a group the first two are $10 each, then $5 each for additional members. Little kids are free. If you have a lot of baggage there is an additional $5 charge. If you need to go beyond our idea of 'town', we'll add to the trip in $5 increments depending on how far.
Quick Town Trip: If you want to get into town and then right back to your ferry to continue to the next port the cost is $15 each for the round trip. Little kids are still free, but there is no group discount.
With every trip into town we give a quick tour. If you are in hurry we can skip the tour. If everybody on the ride has time to spare we'll do a longer tour.
In town we'll get you to and from anywhere you need to go: Port Chilkoot Dock (cruise ships and Haines-Skagway Fast Ferry), Small Boat Harbor (Fjordlines and chartered fishing), Battery Point and Ripinsky Trailheads, Valley of the Eagles Golf, etc. The cost is $5 per person per ride.
Private tours or any large group shuttle/taxi will be calculated at a rate of $100 per hour for a van. That means a taxi trip in town with one van won't exceed $30, and a van load traveling together from the ferry to town won't exceed $50.
Most people going to or from the airport are flying with Alaska Seaplanes, and they will provide complementary ground transport. Otherwise, we price the airport the same as the AMHS ferry.
Kroschel Wildlife Center is just far enough away that we would have to wait there while you do the tour. The best deal by far is to rent a car, or two.
