We took a fun and interesting morning sea kayak tour with Morgan on the Salish Sea in the Olympic Peninsula. It was a beautiful, calm morning and Morgan was a great guide, knowledgeable, helpful, funny, and great all the interesting creatures, otters, harbor seals, sea stars, jelly fish and anenomes.

We were a group of four sea kayaking on the Salish Sea with our guide Morgan. Morgan really brought everything alive for us both in the water and on the shore. He was easy going, a good conversationalist and very knowledge about the sea life, the general area, and the wild life that we saw. Ours was a calm, sunny... More

A highlight of our trip for sure! We had 18 people ranging from 9-50. Morgan and crew took great care of us, setting us up with the right equipment and pacing the trip for all levels. We kayaked along the coast of the Olympic Peninsula. Views and sights were amazing. Morgan spotted and spoke about the sea life along the... More

We signed up for a sea kayak tour along Freshwater Bay on the Olympic Peninsula. The trip was approximately 2 hours in the boats. Our guide was an engaging, experienced young man with a wealth of knowledge of the geology, biology and history of the area. His stories of other tours he has led kept us laughing the better part...

Morgan was our guide (owner of Olympic Raft). We did the sunrise sea kayak tour on freshwater bay. Don't let the name 'freshwater bay' fool you. This is the ocean. It was mesmerizing. Morgan had everything ready for us and on this day, it was just my wife and I. We started our day at 6am and the weather was... More

This is a well-run organization with a very friendly crew. Had to leave a message to book the trip but they got right back to us, then due to low river levels our trip was shorter than we'd thought it would be when we left home (discount given). It was still good and the Elwha is truly beautiful. All equipment... More

Thank you Julie for your positive feedback and honest review!

It is unfortunate that we are going through a drought and we came into low... More

I just did the full Elwha River raft float last weekend and it was excellent. Morgan (the owner and chief guide) and his crew do a fine job. The weather was great and the scenery amazing. I recommend it and them highly. - Pat Downs

We had a great time with Olympic Raft & Kayak! Morgan and Brogan were very welcoming towards us and made us feel like we were kayaking pros. We learned a lot about the area when we explored and had fun while doing it. Add this to your itinerary when visiting! We plan to go back and try rafting next time!

Rafting the Elwha River and seeing the 3 foot plus salmon swimming up river was amazing. The guides were wonderful - pointing out the salmon as well as bald eagles swooping down on the salmon. Wonderful time on the river. It was the first time that many salmon had been that far upriver in over 100 years and the guides... More
