Enhancement of weekly service to Alaska's Aleutian Trade Area

June 15, 2005

Coastal Transportation is pleased to announce the enhancement of our 2005 weekly service to Alaska's Aleutian Trade Area. In addition to the ports we currently service (Alitak, Chignik, Sand Point, King Cove, Cold Bay, False Pass, Akutan, and Dutch Harbor) we will offer expanded seasonal coverage to Port Moller, St. Paul and Larsen Bay. Additional service is available to other Alaskan areas and outports upon inducement.

Also added to our fleet are two new vessels: the Coastal Progress (ex-Yellowfin), scheduled to depart Seattle on July 15, and the Coastal Nomad (ex-Redfin), scheduled to depart Seattle on July 29.
