The M/V Tustumena is now scheduled to arrive in Unalaska at 9:15 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9

The M/V Tustumena has been rescheduled to arrive in Unalaska on Saturday morning.

“The previously cancelled M/V Tustumena sailings have been rescheduled,” according to a service notice posted today on the Alaska Marine Highway System website.

The September sailing, which was set to arrive in Unalaska last weekend, was cancelled due to inclement weather and crew shortages. A new sailing was scheduled for this Friday, but has now been rescheduled to arrive a day later.

The M/V Tustumena is now set to arrive in Unalaska at 9:15 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9, and to depart in the late afternoon. It is the last ferry scheduled to visit the island this year.
