Before booking, I easily did over 40 hours of research trying to narrow down which company we would go with out of Friday Harbor.

We had such a great time, learned some new things (like about Bull Kelp, a helpful anchor and a tasty snack!) and really enjoyed ourselves. Corey was great as were the 2 others who were there in training. Thanks for a fun experience!

Our 4 day kayaking adventure with Crystal Seas was the high point of our Honeymoon trip! Our guides , Hannah and Molly, were young and fun - with loads of information about the San Juan Islands! The food was terrific (those girls can cook) and plentiful, and the local wine with dinner was a really special touch, as was the... More

On 9/25 we had a fine trip thanks to our guide's (Corey) laid-back yet most informative style along with a stunning sunset! The paddle was perfectly paced and just the right length to allow us to concentrate on the sunset. We look forward to a visit in the future and are hopeful that we can take advantage of one of...

Oh my god! My group saw about ten orca, some of which came up pretty close to the kayaks. One apparently swam under mine according to my guide. This was an experience I will never forget. You could hear them breathing and I used the sound to spot them in the ocean. I went on several whale watching trips but... More
