My brother, mom, and I (all adults) were planning a day trip to Anacortes for one day and signed up for the 10am half-day kayak trip out of Anacortes. Signing up was simple and straightforward. The only small issue we had was with parking - apparently we paid for the lot but found out later we could have parked elsewhere... More

I recently went on a 4-day kayak trip with Anacortes Kayak Tours and overall had a great experience. We left directly from Anacortes for a short paddle to Cypress Island (about 2 hour paddle) where we stopped for lunch. Not much activity in terms of wildlife in this area; however, we ventured about another 2 hours further north and began... More

Thanks for the feedback about your experience Keith. It's regrettable that we could not have earned a higher TripAdvisor rating from you after receiving such a great report from the post-trip survey that we sent out to you after your tour. It is comforting to know that you want to join us again on a trip to Sucia Island, and... More

My husband and I love spending some time outdoors together whenever we are in Anacortes and the Kayak Tours by the Skyline neighborhood was the best one we've ever been to. Our tour guide, Gary, was extremely knowledgable and kept a great pace as we toured around for three hours. He was engaging and always had an interesting answer for... More

I have enjoyed quite a bit of Kayaking, my 9 year old son, however had never been out and was very cautious about the trip. Our guide, Tucker was a very easy-going, knowledgable and supportive instructor...helping alleviate my sons fears and allowing me to fully enjoy the trip. The scenery was excellent...the waters were easily negotiable and there was plenty... More

We booked a multi-day tour for a family four with the youngest being 12. This trip was gift to our oldest daughter who graduated college just one week prior. She always wanted a chance to kayak around the San Juan islands to see the orca whales. Anacortes Kayak Tours (AKT) was very open and honest about our chances to see... More

Wow, thanks for posting such a great review of your experience. Greg showed me that video clip of your whale encounter.....holy cow, that was amazing! I drove whale watch boats for many years before we started Anacortes Kayak Tours and I know that it doesn't get much better than that. I'm glad that you enjoyed your time with Greg as... More

I went on the twilight tour with my brothers and had the best time! Our guide, Will knew everything there is to know about the area and had interesting comments on a lot of the sights. We saw seals, porpoises, AND a couple starfish! It was unforgettable and so fun!

Although Will is new to us this summer, he is an exceptionally talented guide and he is incredibly knowledgeable about the area after a lifetime of cruising with his family out here in the San Juan Islands. He is a huge asset to the team and we feel fortunate that he joined the crew this year! Thanks for taking the... More

We have used Anacortes Kayak Tours for two family trips with children as young as 4 years old. Our guides had the skill to help our "kayak green" group, share interesting information about the surrounding nature, and engaged the children in the tour. Everything was taken care of for us. Communication before the trip was clear, timely and helpful. I... More

This was one of those experiences where we felt like all the glowing Trip Advisor reviews maybe set us up for a bit of a letdown. Great communication during sign up and pre-trip, though a few hiccups on the day of the trip. When we arrived, we were told there were bathrooms at the marina next door, but the directions... More

Thanks for this review Tim, and especially for the fantastic feedback in our earlier exchanges. Your constructive criticism was well thought out (and quite accurate in my opinion). I definitely apologize for the confusion regarding the bathrooms and parking. The marina had changed the codes for the restroom without telling any of the businesses that operated there. We should also... More

We had a wonderful experience kayaking with AKT.
