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

If you're looking for an active vacation, like to bike & kayak, and want to see the San Juans in style we highly recommend TerraTrek Tours. Our guides, Joe & Adrienne, were both outstanding, and the meals, lodging and everything else was top notch. Truly a memorable trip.

We took a 3 day kayak/camping trip with Crystal Seas. Our guides, Kevin and Cory, were wonderful, and the scenery was spectacular. The islands are beautiful and we saw so much marine life, plus bald eagles and deer on the islands. Kevin impressed us all with his knowledge of the islands and the currents, and Cory is the most incredble... More

Had a great trip out with Tim. Weather was great, we saw seals, a stellar sea lion, a bald eagle and several bird species. Would highly recommend Crystal Seas and Tim was an extremely knowledgeable, fun guide. We will be back!

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.
