Crystal Seas Kayak arranged our 5 day kayak tour of the San Juan Islands. Krista was our guide during the entire experience. She was professional, friendly, organized and enthusiastic! We did not arrange to have a private guide for the week, but our group was just us and Krista!! We traveled from island to island via the ferry system. Once... More

Our guide Tim was an absolute gem! And our experience on the water surrounded by orcas was magical. We could not have asked for a better day all around.

My husband and I enjoyed a 4-day outdoor trip on the San Juan Islands. We biked 3 of the days with a day of kayaking and whale watching for a change of pace. The inns we stayed at were perfect for us and in great locations, our dinners were excellent. In addition to the beautiful scenery, we appreciated our guide.... More

Cory and Sasha our guides, led us up the west side of San Juan and Henry Islands where we paddled past numerous orcas and seals. We camped at Reid Inlet on Stuart Island and caught a stellar sunrise the next morning, followed by a circumnavigation of Stuart Island and really nice hike to the high point on the island. Dinner...

The 3 hours we spent as a family of 4 with Tim on the water was a highlight of our trip. He was awesome and a guy that I would request the next time we are in the San Juans. Tell him thank you again. Casey R

We took a two day trip with Corey and Kevin over Labor Day last year and I've meant to write a review ever since. I really don't even have the words to describe how incredible our trip was. Corey and Kevin were so knowledgeable of not only kayaking, but the area and local ecosystems. We learned so much about sea... More

A group of nine of us, mostly white-water rafters, tried sea kayaking for the first time using Crystal Seas as our mentor. Our guides were Corey and Sasha. We were well-supplied with gear: top of the line kayaks, safety equipment, camping essentials, and excellent food. Our five-day tour took us north off the west side of San Juan Island to... More

I had a wonderful time during my kayaking and camping tour with Steve! He is very knowledgeable, fun, caring and patient. I appreciate all his hard work guiding our group through the waters safely while telling us about the local wildlife that we saw. He also took care to sharing points of interests for us to explore on the islands.... More
