My sister and I had a fabulous kayak trip. Sasha was a darling. He was very knowledgeable and we were lucky enough to see lots of orcas including babies and one male came very close to us. Even a totally drenching rain didn't dampen our spirits. Take a change of clothes if there's a chance of rain. Shivering in Seattle

I would highly recommend the 3 hour kayak trip organized by this company. We kayaked in July, 2015. The whole adventure was great from beginning to end. The staff is very organized, friendly and knowledgeable. Our group consisted of a family of four and the two of us so when out on the water, we got plenty of individual attention... More

This trip has been a lifelong wish for my sister. We were able to get reservations for the time that we were traveling through, met up at the office where everything was very well organized and then we headed off with our guide Kinsey and some other visitors to snug Harbor. We happen to have brought our car across on... More

Excellent trip. Very well organized. Great equipment (bikes, kayaks, tent, sleeping pad & bag, etc. Guide (Brett) was the best. Food was healthy and plentiful. Four days of biking and two days of kayaking. Couldn't ask for a better six days in the islands.

This is our 2nd trip with Crystal Seas, and once again we had a great afternoon on the water. Our guide Ben was very knowledgeable about the area, and he pointed out wildlife as we paddled. The equipment is top notch and the guests' comfort and safety was important as we prepared to go out. While I was hoping to... More

This is my 3rd day trip with Crystal Seas and it never disappoints!!! We did the all day kayak trip and did 10 miles of paddling total. Our guide Hannah was extremely knowledgeable on the history and wildlife in the area and gave us excellent pre-trip kayak instruction. She even gave us a little tow when we were struggling to...

Our guide, Krista, was soooo charming and engaged and informative. We both adored her. Bright & lovely with a wonderful personality - GREAT sense of humor! She made the trip an awesome experience. We did the 3 day trip - but I pooped out on kayaking the last day - no problem, Krista took my BF out for a paddle... More

Our family of 4- two semi-out of shape 50 year olds and our 20 and 14 year old daughters- did the 3 hour tour. Our guide Julian was great. He didn't push us too hard but hard enough so we got to where we needed to be to keep us safe and still see seals, eagles and a pod of... More
