Wife and I went on a sunset tour. They picked us up and dropped us off from center of town. Our guide was just right in terms of giving us info about the area but not being overly chatty. She was also completely open to us charting our own path so to speak. The area is very picturesque with good... More

We took the full day tour, about 5-6 hours paddling, from Snug Harbor down past Deadman's Bay. The weather was beautiful and the water was calm. We rowed at a challenging but comfortable pace, stopped for lunch at Deadman's. After lunch we scoured the coastline for the amazing sea life and then road the current home. Our guide, Corey, was...

My husband and I took a quick trip up to the SanJauan Islands during a weekend in Seattle. One of the items that was on the must-do list was a Sea Kayaking trip. After looking at a variety of companies, I booked with Crystal Seas. We booked the Sunset Kayak trip and Cory was our guide. First, the islands are... More

Cory was our guide which wasn't a strain on him since there was only my wife and I on the tour. Kayaking the West side of San Juan Island at sunset was an experience we'll never forget. The serenity and beauty of the channel and island was staggering. We loved watching the bald eagles perched high above the water line,... More

The kayaking trip far exceeded my expectations. As a former whitewater guide in WA, I know how hard it is to lead a great trip. Your guides are wonderful and the food and equipment is fantastic! I want to take another trip with them next year. - Valerie, Redmond, WA

"Albert was the perfect guide. It turned out that it was just my friend Mary and I, and Albert on the kayaking trip. It was great. I loved that he would make us lunch on an island, we really felt pampered. The equipment was high quality, like we own and use at home, and we really appreciated that. Loved, loved... More

We took the 3 day kayak camping trip with Crystal Seas. An excellent way to try sea kayaking. The food prepared by our guides was excellent and was made with locally grown ingredients. We camped 2 nights on Stuart Island, an interesting place to hike. Everything was first class. We will go again.

We did a 5 day, 4 night rafting trip with Crystal Seas, which was perfect! We have been on many rafting trips but this food was the best by far. Irene and Kevin were a great team! They were able to adjust to our needs - we had five adults, two teen agers and a 22-year-old and everyone was psyched... More
