My best friend and I took a trip to the San Juan Islands to kayak WITH Orcas. We did the 3 day, 700$ expedition, and it wasn't worth a single penny. In our group, it was her and I, and two Australian males. Our "leader" was also a male. During this three day trip, we kayaked over 40miles without seeing... More

From the start, Sea Quest was wonderful. They were always accessible by phone during the planning stage and gave detailed information, answering all of my questions (with patience-lol). The actual kayak trip was incredible, flawless and an experience I will never forget. Gina, our guide, was so knowledgeable about everything from sea life and botany to the history of the... More

The company used very good equipment, showed up on time and kept to the schedule that was layed out beforehand. The area we kayaked (40+ miles over 3 days) was beautiful! Sam was our guide and was TOTALLY AWESOME! He made great breakfasts and dinners for the group of 8. He was WAY STOKED about all the animals we did... More

I love sea kayaking and wanted to explore the San Juan area (most beautiful place ever). Our guide, Eric, was awesome. He shared so much information about the wildlife we saw while kayaking and it was such a fun journey. We camped on a cute little island surrounded by seals and enjoyed gorgeous sunsets and sunrises. It was truly an... More

We had a great time. We did the 3 day camping/kayaking trip and enjoyed the whole thing. We didn't see any orcas on this trip, but that's the way it goes sometimes. But what we missed out on with this trip was made up with many other great things. We saw many seals, eagles, porpoises, owls, deer and many other... More

We recently completed a 3 day kayaking tour in the San Juan Islands. Sam Kaviar exceeded our expectations for a guide—he is affable, kind, calm, and experienced, as well as knowledgeable about the flora, fauna, and history of the San Juan Islands—and most importantly, he is a good cook. I would say that the entire tour went smoothly. We met... More

This was the highlight of our trip to the San Juan Islands! We saw dozens of orcas within minutes of paddling and they put on an hour long show! We also saw eagles, harbor seals, porpoises and many other interesting creatures! My husband had kayaked before but my ten year old son and I were newbies and I was definitely... More

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
