A Brief History

AlaskaACT was originally formed in 2007 to inform Alaskans and policy makers of the damaging effects of a ballot measure that was passed which levied a large per passenger "head tax," prompting cruise lines to move ships elsewhere. Ultimately, after the head tax was partially reduced, ships returned to Alaska and for the first time since 2009, over one million cruise passengers traveled to Alaska in 2016.

AlaskaACT today strives to proactively keep the cruise industry as a bright spot in Alaska's economy.
