This is a fun kayaking trip that is suitable for beginners and experienced paddlers alike! Departing from Roche Harbor on San Juan Island, you’ll be paddling out on the “Orca Highway”, offering you the best opportunity to enjoy sea kayaking with our endangered Southern Resident Killer Whales. While your guide searches for whales and other interesting wildlife, you’ll be treated to gorgeous views into Canada and the Olympic mountains.
Your San Juan Island sea kayaking experience begins at the lovely Roche Harbor Resort where your guide will outfit you in kayaking gear and give you a brief paddle lesson and safety talk before you set out.
Most trips set out to circumnavigate Henry Island on the west side of San Juan Island. Wildlife is abundant here, and there are ample opportunities to encounter seals, porpoise, and the iconic Orca whales.
While whale encounters are certainly a very exciting possibility on these kayaking tours, loads of interesting marine life can be found even when the whales are not in the area. Your guides are skilled naturalists who enjoy sharing their knowledge of the area with their guests so be sure to ask a lot of questions.
A mid-trip break on the beach allows you to stretch your legs and enjoy a bite to eat. Food is not provided; please bring your own lunch or snack to enjoy on the islands!
