This is a Private and Exclusive tour aboard a new, high-speed alaskan-waters vessel. Due to the size and speed of the Samantha Lynne we can cover far more area than the larger, slower and much more crowded sightseeing vessels typical of Ketchikan water tours. Aboard the Samantha Lynne you are guaranteed to see the wonder of Southeast Alaska and its waters. Although there is no way to guarantee marine mammal sightings, we frequently see seals and humpback whales, and occasionally killer whales, sea lions, porpoises and even a bear or two.
