This tour is perfect for families and small groups looking for a more personal experience than that offered aboard larger buses and boats. Aboard the Samantha Lynne you will have the freedom to stay inside the heated cabin or move around on the rear deck with unobstructed views. There is no smelly diesel engine exhaust allowing you to smell the forest, the sea breeze and sometimes even whale breath.

Due to the size and speed of the Samantha Lynne we have the ability to cover significantly more distance than many of the larger vessels in search of whales, seals, porpoise, eagles and bear, all the while enjoying the magnificent wonder of Southeast Alaska.
