3-Day Sea Kayaking in the San Juan Islands
When it comes to a 3-Day sea kayaking adventure in the San Juan Islands, we’ve got what you are looking for! Anacortes Kayak Tours is the only company to offer regularly scheduled departures from Anacortes, San Juan Island, and Orcas Island. We can show you the Orca whales, the sublime beauty of the Outer San Juan Islands, and the wild nature of the Cypress Island Biological Reserve. Do you and your family want to have a private and exclusive experience? No problem, our private trip option is the perfect choice!
Cypress Island 3-Day Tour
$549 / from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend
Kayaking to the Cypress Island Biological Reserve is the most requested overnight trip that we offer…and for good reason! This wild place has been designated as a Natural Area Preserve and a Marine Protected Area. There’s simply nothing like it anywhere else in the San Juans. Additionally, it’s a very convenient trip for you to plan because we launch directly from Anacortes and require no ferry hassles. You can’t find a more affordable or convenient trip anywhere out here.
San Juan Island 3-Day Tour
$599 / from May 1st through October 11th
Departing from the west side of San Juan Island, this kayak trip launches directly into the proposed Orca Whale Sanctuary and paddles to either Stuart Island State Park or Jones Island State Park. Although we frequently see our resident Orca pods on all of our trips, this one has a slightly higher chance of an encounter.
We offer complimentary shuttle service from Friday Harbor to our launch site.
Sucia Island 3-Day Tour
$649 / from May 1st through October 11th
Sucia Island is unlike any other place in the San Juan Islands. The golden sandstone has been eroded here into whimsical shapes and the wildlife is abundant. We launch from Orcas Island in order to give you the most time in this unique place. This is one of our favorite places to go.
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.
