M/V LeConte Service Area
SE Feeder Communities including Glacier Bay National Park

The LeConte's amenities include a hot-food cafeteria, movie and forward observation lounges, and a solarium. There are no cabins on the LeConte both because of its small size and the lack of demand due to its feeder route running times 

M/V LeConte is a feeder vessel for the Alaska Marine Highway System, built in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin in 1973 and commissioned in 1974 by Alaska's ferry system. LeConte is the older sister ship to M/V Aurora, and both serve as feeder vessels that pick up passengers in small communities such as Hoonah and take them to larger regional communities.
