Maya was great, the weather was beautiful, and the scenery was amazing! Couldn't ask for a better trip. Maya was really knowledgable and excited about her job and the marine environment, even the houses on the hills above us. She made us feel really comfortable on the water, and it was great! Best part of our trip.

I spend a wonderful, warm and calm day at sea - watching seals, eagles and other wildlife. It was exponentially improved because of our guide, Sara. Sara is a marine biologist that provided INCREDIBLE information during the row. Even though this kayak tour was a few dollars more, the guide, information, quiet launch location and small group was well worth... More

We were out with our guide Corey on Saturday evening. It was a great time and I can't wait to go back! We saw many seals, a bald eagle and many other birds, dolphins, and a stellar sea lion. Finally, we turned around, paddled back to nearly home, and watched the sunset. It was a great time!

My partner and I did a sunset kayak tour with CS and had a WONDERFUL time. We didn't see orcas, but then we didn't expect to.* We did see seals, a sea lion (a bit unnerving, as he was in an area you usually don't see them and seemed to be following us for a bit), eagles, lots of other... More

This was a very nice experience to go ocean kayaking. The guide we had was very knowledgeable of the wildlife and natural surroundings. She made sure we had adequate instruction before leaving and also made sure to keep us at a pace that was not too strenuous and still allowed us to enjoy the scenery. Unfortunately, we had unrealistic expectations... More

I have been kayaking on this island a few times and have used just about every kayak outfitter on the island and this one is my favorite. I took a half day trip early one morning with Sarah. Highly recommend her! She is very knowledgable and really takes the time to not only teach kayaking but to teach you about... More

Took a 2 day trip with Cory and Kevin. They are both incredibly knowledgeable and experienced guides. Felt very safe with them. They took care of everything- monitoring the tides and ocean conditions, and weather. We were equipped with the best boats and gear, and camping equipment. Cory is the best cook ever!! We had unbelievable organic meals all,prepared by... More

The family had a wonderful time on the 3 hour tour even with the rain :D Next time we'll book a longer one and look for orcas! Thanks Tim for a great experience (especially for the kids first time kayaking) - best guide ever!

We were only in Friday Harbor for 2-Days and the two things we had to do were kayaking and whale watching. We happened by Crystal Seas on our way to dinner our first night and were able to book both trips for the next day from the same place. The kayak trip was excellent. Our guide was Kate and she...

We absolutely loved it! Everything, from camp sites, kayaking experience and bike trails, was outstanding. Not to mention amazing food with local specialties. We forgot our water-resistant clothes, and our guide, Albert, of course, brought extras just in case, as well as extra boots, and many other extra things. One of the member of our group, decided to bike all... More
