The MV Kaleetan is a Super Class ferry operated by Washington State Ferries.

The Kaleetan is named for a mountain peak northwest of Snoqualmie Pass. As of mid 2007, the boat operates on the Anacortes/San Juan Islands route. The boat will typically operate the northern route in the summer and then move to the more southern Seattle/Bremerton route for the rest of the year.
