I unfortunately had to cancel my trip with Crystal Seas because of a family situation. The folks at Crystal Seas were very understanding and provided a prompt refund. Excellent business practices, and I hope to actually do the trip next year--very much looking forward to it.

First time kayaking, made an excellent experience by Hannah, our guide/instructor. She was very knowledgeable of the area, wildlife, sea vegetation. Everyone we encountered dealing with Crystal Seas Kayaking were friendly, helpful, reassuring. Loved this experience, would recommend it to anyone looking to see the area from a kayak.

This was my second Crystal Seas tour and both were absolutely fantastic. The first was a 5 day Kayaking/Biking trip with Jordan and Albert and it was just what I needed. Off the grid Island glamping at it's best. The second trip was a quick three hour Kayaking trip off of San Juan Island with Micheal. Did we see whales?... More

This was our first kayaking trip, so we were a little apprehensive. We had recently had some physical challenges leading to loss of range of motion, but Tim, our guide, was very patient with both of us. When we needed assistance, he didn't make a big deal out of it or embarrass us. The trip was just the right length... More

We wanted to share what an awesome experience we had with Corey and Hannah. We were treated to wonderful guides, great cooking, fun times, not to mention teaching our group the in's and out's of kayaking. Our experience was unbelievable and we will carry this memory forever. With no hesitation we will recommend this trip to our fiends and let... More

That is really enough said. Our 4 day Inn to Inn kayaking adventure was AMAZING! Albert took care of our every need (plus many needs that we didn't even know that we had!) The paddles each day were amazing. The lunches that Albert put together on the beautiful beach areas were we stopped were delicious. The nightly accommodations were incredible.... More

I booked two 3-hour trips with Crystal Seas Kayaking, one during the day and a sunset paddle. I chose this company because it leaves out of Snug Harbor and I was staying at the resort, which made for a convenient commute before and after the trips. On our first trip, there were two in my group and a group of... More

All the staff were really friendly. Beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife - we saw eagles, seals, ocher starfish, blood starfish, egg-yolk jellyfish, cormorants and black oyster catchers. Our guide was very informative also. All in all, thumbs up!!!

From the beginning the entire staff was professional and fun. This was a first time for us and they were patient and explained everything very well. Alex, our guide, was awesome! He had lots of information and kept us informed. The kayaking was fun and a great experience. We did the 3-hour tour with myself, husband, 76-year old father-in-law, 13... More
