Excellent experience. We had very knowledgeable and experienced guides. The other kayaking loving members of our trip made the tour especially memorable. The camping sites were beautiful and the gourmet food was the best.

Our experience with Crystal Seas Kayaking couldn't have been better. We were a party of four and were lucky enough to have the sunset tour all to ourselves. Maggie was a fantastic guide. She instructed us well and acted as our personal photographer for the evening. She was great at pointing things out on the tour and making all of... More

I called Crystal seas the day before we wanted to go. They were very helpful and called within 15 minutes to confirm a trip! We had Cory as our guide and he was awesome. The weather was perfect!

We took the 3 hour tour, kayaking along the shore and enjoyed seeing the salmon jump out of the water as they headed upsream. We learned about ball kelp and even had a taste; it was a bit salty. Our guide, Corry was an excellent guide, instructing us in the use of ocean kayaks and quite knowledgeable about sea life.... More

From the first call to our eventual trip, Crystal Seas staff were supportive, helpful, flexible and accomoodating!!A nasty storm forced cancellation of our first trip attempt which we were easily able to reschedule for this past weekend. Excellent customer service!!! We were treated to a perfect day of Kayaking on the West Side of San Juan Island. Our guide, Cory,... More

I haven't went on the kayak adventure yet, and already Crystal Seas has shown how committed they are to accommodating the customer. We booked a kayaking trip a day before we decided to go and they were able to suit our needs and adjust their schedule so it would fit with ours... we are very excited about our sunset kayaking...

I have been on a number of kayak trips in my 30 years in the Pacific Northwest and this one was by far the best. Crystal Seas Kayaking picks you up near the ferry dock and takes you right to Snug Harbor. Of all the kayak places we have used this was the most easiest to get in and out... More

We had a total blast on the 3-hour sunset kayak trip. I was a little worried that we would be sore the next day since we are not avid paddlers. But our guide, Tim, was awesome, and gave us some paddling tips and it was all easy-breezy, and I felt fine the next day. Our group included an awesome 84-year-old... More

We selected Crystal Seas after reading the TripAdvisor reviews and are so happy we did. The pickup point was just a short walk from the ferry terminal in Friday Harbor. Our guide, Dakota, drove us to the other side of the island. Kayaking out of Snug Harbor meant that we started in a lovely, quiet cove and were quickly away... More
