The vessel entered service in May 2010 and carries up to 150 passengers between Homer and Seldovia, Alaska. It is operated by the Seldovia Village Tribe as the Seldovia Bay Ferry and is M/V Kachemak Voyager.

All American Marine, of Bellingham, WA constructed the vessel under the project supervision of Red Mountain Maritime.
