Sucia Island Marine Park is actually a cluster of small islands situated near the Washington and Canada border, on the northern edge of the San Juan Islands. Due to it’s isolation, drop-dead-gorgeous scenery, and relative difficulty of access, sea kayaking around Sucia Island has long been the most coveted experience among kayakers coming to the San Juan Islands. Sucia Island is peppered with submerged reefs, making navigation by larger boats a treacherous activity, but providing an amazing playground for sea kayaks. We can get right up against the shoreline to explore the crazy rock formations which make Sucia Island so famous.

The highly eroded sandstone is formed into bold shapes; honeycombed cliffs, whimsical hoodoos, arches, and caves. Sucia Island’s proximity to the wildlife rich Strait of Georgia guarantees great views of seals, porpoise, loads of eagles and their nests, and occasionally Resident Orca whales.

What makes this sea kayak trip unique is that we are departing directly from Orcas Island. A short crossing over to Sucia Island gets us immediately into the “sweet spots.” This is the easiest way to get to the Sucia Group, and for the entire duration of the trip you will be exploring these amazing shorelines.

We specialize in small group, all inclusive, multi-day sea kayak trips in the San Juans.

  • On these multi-day sea kayaking expeditions we strictly adhere to a 6 guest per guide ratio. All trips larger than 6 people will have two guides.
  • Groups of 5 or more guests can choose to have a private kayaking experience!
    (multi-day trips only)
  • A small sea kayaking group can move much more efficiently. We need less time attending to logistical issues like setting up or breaking camp and have more time for exploring and having fun in the San Juan Islands.
  • All camping and kayaking equipment is provided, as are all meals, including lunches.

The longer multi-day sea kayaking expeditions are best suited for folks in reasonably good shape. Occasionally there is a need to make a long push to get to the next campsite and we would not want to wear anyone out on a long crossing. We actually design these trips to be a little more physically involved. 5 day trips might average 8-10 miles per day paddling.

Anacortes Kayak Tours reserves the right to change or cancel available departure dates and prices. Once you book a kayak tour with us we will run it, as long as weather conditions permit us to conduct a safe sea kayaking excursion.

On multiday kayaking trips we do have a minimum of two people to run the trip, this is a matter of safety, not economics.

Don’t hesitate to call us if you have questions or would like additional details on any of our trips.

Megan — thank you in particular for the fine shopping and meal planning. The boys and I were joking that we ate better during the trip than we did at home the past 2 months (due to baseball and the need for lots of hasty meals.) We certainly didn’t lose weight.

Thanks too to Tiffan and Pete, our guides. They really made the trip special. I can’t say enough about their expert planning, and the fun we had with their local knowledge. I’m not normally a “guided tour” kind of guy, but this trip was the better for everything they brought to the table.

Pete, Matt, and Andrew Noone
