we did the 3 day kayak trip and camped both nights in the same group site on Stuart island. The campground was disappointing and was at the top of the stairs leading to two large marinas in harbors on either side of the island, the island also has year round residents, so this is hardly backcountry or wilderness camping. The... More

We were picked up at the Friday Harbor ferry circle 11:30AM. Hotel pick up and drop off would have been nice considering how much we had to pack and how hard it is to find a parking spot for more than 2 hours. The vans were easy to find. The leaders were very organized with their groups and waver forms.... More

I was very disappointed in my Sea Quest tour. My biggest complaint is the "day" kayak tour we paid for ended up being 2 and a half hours on the water. We did not get to the launch point until about 12:15 pm. Then it took forever as the guides were unorganized in how they selected our groups and had... More

8/9/14: My boyfriend and I were very much looking forward to this kayaking adventure and it was a huge success. I would highly recommend this company to anyone visiting San Juan Island. Finding the pick-up van: Contrary to a recent previous post, the van you are picked up in is VERY easy to find. All you have to do is... More

Sam Kaviar provided superior expertise in guiding, camping and cooking on our 3 day excursion. Extremely knowledgeable of the area and affable as well. Sam kept us out of harms way on a particularly windy day, by getting us into some coves where the paddling was easier. These tours are not for the novice, so do some research before you... More

We did the 6 hr. day paddle. Our guide, Jason, was organized, courteous and knowledgeable. Though we are experienced kayakers, most in our group of 12(6 double kayaks) were not. Jason was great with instructions and seemed clued in to the needs of individuals in the group. We saw eagles, seals, and about 20 orca. We always felt safe, even... More

SeaQuest delivered perfect weather for all three days of our trip! :-) Sam and Franny were knowledgeable scientists and competent campers. They made the trip rich with stories of local history and lots on great info on habitats and habits of the vast array of wildlife: bald eagles, egrets, cormorants, seals, jellyfish....Orcas, all three days! It's a workout for sure.... More

We saw that this company had great reviews & we wanted to support seeing whales in their natural environment. We had to call 3 times to confirm the meeting place as the website is confusing. I will tell you their van has Sea Quest on it so you won't get confused by other companies picking ppl up. Our guide &... More

We went out on the three day trip understanding that wild animals are well...WILD. They show up when they feel like it and do not arrive on a bus schedule. If you expect tour companies to be responsible for wild animals, weather, climate change, ocean acidification and plate tectonics then do not read further and stay on the planet you... More

Matt was a brilliant on this trip. He was over the top helpful and also very informative. We were given some instruction and then off on the water. It was a fabulous day to paddle and we were truly lucky to see bald eagles, harbor seals and orcas!! If you can do this trip you wont be upset!!
