We went for a three hour Kayak tour on August 8th and had a great time. The people at San Juan Outfitters were incredibly accommodating. We were only on the island for one day and we were late because of the ferry. The staff adjusted our accommodations and even had a member of their staff drive us back to the... More

My dad and I have been planning this trip for a couple years. We chose San Juan Island Outfitters because they supplied all of the gear required for the overnight trip. Since we were travelling from California, this was important to us. We also chose SJIO because they had excellent reviews online.... They most certainly did not disappoint! We were... More

Chris was an amazing guide. "Under promise and over deliver" is something my father always told me. Boy, did the gang at San Juan Outfitters take that phrase to a new level. Megan was great on the phone and took time to explain things to me. The team were very patient with us on getting us comfortable in the Kayak's.... More

On August 26, 2013 we went on a Kayak trip with San Juan Outfitters out of Roche Harbor. We brought out two kids ages 11 and 8. We were lucky to Courtney Leake as our guide. She was wonderful and patient with our children who were not strong paddlers. The scenery was fantastic and Courtney explained many things about the... More

We recently did both a three hour whale watching boat trip and a three hour sunset kayak tour with San Juan Outfitters. We were very impressed with their honesty (they gave us realistic odds of seeing orcas, rather than leading one to believe it was a definite like many of the other companies - and in the end we were...

We went to San Juan with hopes of seeing Orcas in the wild. I knew going in that it is not guaranteed that we would see whales. We chose the three day, two night trip. All went well, weather, food, sunsets, hikes and company. I had a feeling we were hitting the island on a bad week after talking to... More

We booked the 5hr kayak tour around Henry Island and had a great experience. Out of the 5 of us only 1 had any kayaking experience but with the instruction given at the beginning of the tour by our guide and the confidence he had in our abilities we felt very safe and had nothing to worry about. We lucked... More

I live in Roche Harbor on San Juan Island and have used San Juan Outfitters several times. This year our nieces (20 and 18) came for a visit and we took the San Juan Outfitters Whale Watching tour. The boat is very clean and owner Brian very knowledgeable. We saw whales and just as importantly, Brian was very respectable of... More

We went out in 2 double kayaks, for a half day tour. There were 4 in our party; two experienced kayakers, and 2 first timers. Our guide (Kestrel) was fantastic - she was knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, and found a great route for us to take when the wind got up. We saw some great wildlife, and... More

Our family group of 10 (including three generations) had an incredibly memorable time on this 3-hour tour. We sincerely appreciated all the care that was taken to make sure all of us (including grandchildren, ages 5 and 6) were safe, comfortable and engaged. Best of all was the knowledgeable guide who had so many stories to tell and breadth of... More
