Just wanted to let you know what a great first time sea kayaking experience you provided for my husband and I yesterday. We had a great time. Your approach was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and most of all…fun! Our kudos to Dave as well. As guides, you compliment each other very well. Your attention to detail and the fact that you provide such good equipment made us feel comfortable and safe the whole time.

Our best to you, your family and hoping you continued success with your business. We’re telling anyone who’ll listen about Anacortes Kayaking Tours and how they should give kayaking a try. Thanks again.
