KAYAKING THE SAN JUAN ISLANDS IS

An Experience like No Other!

The San Juan Islands are the best place in the world to view killer whales, and viewing them from a kayak is an experience like none other. 

Our sister company San Juan Island Outfitters offers multiple sea kayaking tours daily, operating both out of Roche Harbor and Friday Harbor.

We are the exclusive kayak operator from Roche Harbor on San Juan Island.  This allows us access to areas where no other kayak company can go. The location is ideal for kayaking and wildlife tours, as it is a combination of protected water and wildlife hotspots.  We do offer free transportation from Friday Harbor – a quick 20-minute ride.

Special kayak tours also depart from Friday Harbor, your guide will meet you downtown and shuttle you to Jackson's Beach where we launch the kayaks from!  It's a quick 5-minute drive from Friday Harbor downtown.

  • No experience necessary to kayak with us
  • We supply all kayaking equipment
  • We supply your professional kayak guide, who is also a marine naturalist
  • Our kayaks are hand-made, top of the line and glide without effort
  • We pride ourselves on maintaining all of our kayak equipment to the highest standards

TINA A. - AUG 2022

We did the bioluminescent tour which was so awesome. The light up algae made this tour one of my favorite things I ever done. I felt like Moana!
