Prepare for your trip!

The San Juan Islands are famous for their convoluted waterways that pass between small islands covered with grassy meadows and forested slopes, and the Wasp Islands are perhaps the most scenic representation of this landscape.

Jones Island, a Washington State Marine Park, is your ultimate destination on this trip. It has three camping areas, including one that is designated for human-powered boats only. We love camping on Jones Island because of its proximity to the rest of the Wasp Islands, the epic sunsets that can be experienced there, and the abundance of wildlife that can be seen around it. Most of our guests prefer to spend two nights here in order to fully appreciate the beauty of the area.

Launching from Anacortes will enable you to see the dramatically changing topography of the San Juan Islands, and with five days at your disposal you will be able to paddle right through the geographical heart of the archipelago. Heading west, the mountainous slopes of Cypress, Blakely, and Orcas Islands gradually give way to low lying islands separated by narrow channels. Your first night will be spent at one of several boat-in only camp areas found along the way and after this you and your guides will plan the itinerary to take full advantage of the tidal currents, allowing you to maximize your fun.

If you are looking for a highly rewarding sea kayaking experience, in very protected waters, then you would have a hard time beating a trip into the Wasp Islands.

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.

Thank you for everything. Our meeting went like Swiss clockwork from start to finish thanks to you and your amazing guides. I simply can’t say enough good things about those four to do justice to the subtle but stout job they did on our trip. We felt completely safe, the food was nothing short of spectacular (and always right on time!), and they were simultaneously in complete control and entirely respectful of our group. Ours is a company based upon outstanding customer service and it’s perhaps an understatement to say that we demand the same from the agencies and individuals we choose to work with. Anacortes Kayak Tours has certainly lived up to our vision of what customer service can and should be — Bravo!
