Daily northbound and southbound flights are available with Alaska Airlines on the so-called 'Milk Run' serving Seattle, Ketchikan, Petersburg, Juneau and Anchorage. Many claim the flight north to Petersburg is the world’s shortest jet flight – around nine minutes on a good day with fabulous views to boot.
The airport is just over a mile from the town center; an easy walk with light luggage.
- The Alaska Marine Highway Ferry Terminal is a half-mile north of the town center and easily walkable.
- Ferry services run almost daily both northbound and southbound from Wrangell in summer. To the north is Petersburg ($40, three hours) via the winding Wrangell Narrows; to the south, Ketchikan ($53, six hours).
What cruise ships arrive (and there aren't many), pull into City Dock, the T-shaped dock on the north side of downtown from where most sights are walkable.
