We had an excellent full day trip to Sucia Island State Park. Our trip was cancelled the previous day due to windy conditions. We were the only ones able to reschedule, so our trip was just the two of us and our guide. Our guide assessed our kayaking skills and would have changed the course if we had not been... More

My partner and I did a 3 hour tour. There were a total of 4 kayaks and all the other participants had previous kayaking experience (we did not). So we were the slow ones! We would catch up with the others and almost immediately, they would start moving again. Reminded me of hiking with my ex-husband! Because we had to... More

Our family of four enjoyed a sunset trip on a perfect summer evening. Our guide, Michelle, was a good leader, very knowledgable about the wildlife and a very nice person. We were all super impressed when right off the bat on our trip she stopped next to a piling, rolled her kayak halfway over reaching into the water, and came... More

We signed up for a sunset kayak tour, the first night was to windy so we postponed for the next night. Bummer that happened as the first guide seemed great and attentive. The next night, Anika and her "friend" (probably a date), showed up to take 8 of us out. None of us with much kayak experience. No wind so... More

Was a little nervous that and "all day kayak excursion" might be too much for someone who just takes an exercise class 3x/ week and has next to no kayaking experience... But our guide, Shawn, was ultra-mellow and a good teacher. He explained all the necessary information before we headed out. Hubby and I had our best day of vacation... More

We signed-up for the six-hour kayak tour and Darren was an excellent guide--great knowledge of local geography, history, and he pointed out wildlife all while making sure the group had a safe and fun time. You will get a great workout!

Took 8 on out and had a great time; keep it to less than 4 hours unless your group has lots of experience. Some were a bit tired at the end! Saw eagles, otters and seals!

My family and I had a wonderful three hour tour with Sean around Deer Harbor bay. He was attentive to the last detail, and was very helpful in pointing out details of the surrounding beauty. Even my 8 year old and 6 year old were paddling along, having a great time. Sean reviewed all the proper safety instructions so that... More

We just completed a two week road trip exploring Washington and Oregon. We spent three days in the San Juan Islands - including the 4th. Our guide was Corey. Corey's first priority was our safety. Our daughters 15 and 18 were with us. He had a great understanding of the activity and an exceptional knowledge of the area. We spotted... More
