These are two fun sea kayaking tours that depart from either Anacortes, or San Juan Island. Both kayak trips are suitable for beginners and families.

  1. Our Anacortes trips are conveniently located just 90 minutes north of Seattle and require no ferry hassles. Affordably priced, and very scenic, this tour is the best choice for folks who want to visit the San Juan Islands without sacrificing the ability to see other attractions in Washington State. Locals love it because it allows them to get back home in a timely fashion, without worrying about ferry schedules Learn more about our Anacortes Half Day Trips
  2. Our San Juan Islands trips depart from the beautiful north end of San Juan Island. We offer complimentary van service from Friday Harbor to our departure location, so driving onto the San Juan Ferry is not necessary. This trip is best suited for visitors who are staying for multiple days in the San Juans, or who have a little more time to spend here. Learn more about our San Juan Island Half Day Trips.

Thanks for the magical day at Sucia Island. We are still savoring the moments. What a place! The Wendell Berry quote fits…

The world lives
in the death of speech,
and sings there

Your guide Dave was such a pleasant pathfinder for us. And a big appreciation to the Anacortes Kayak Tours owners who provided us with this trip. We are spoiled for life!
