My wife and I completed the full day Eagles and Orcas sea kayaking trip in July 2014. This was a great trip. Well organized, substantial lunch, amazing scenery, great guide, lots of wildlife, and orcas. We were exceptionally lucky in that, near the end of the trip, we were surrounded by orcas, and one even swam directly under our 'raft'... More

We found this company extremely accommodating. I called the day of and was able to secure a 3 hour kayak trip for our family that same afternoon. The owner, Tom, came out himself and guided our tour since it was a last minute reservation. Due to the young ages of our children, 8 & 10, we opted for the Griffin... More

I definitely recommend doing a kayaking tour if you are visiting Friday Harbor....just not a 6 hour one! I took a full day kayaking tour with Outdoor Odysseys. It was great from start to finish. The van promptly picked us up at the circle. On the way to the other side of the island, our guide chatted the entire way... More

Went on a 4 day kayak trip. Everything was well run and there was plenty of good food. Our guide was able to work with some inclement weather we encountered, and we were able to still have fun and see some interesting stuff. including orcas, otters, eagles, seals, and a variety if intertidal life. It was a great trip and... More

A wonderful introduction to the San Juan Islands and we did see Orca!!! Our companions were also an interesting and enjoyable group of people. All in all a... More

This is the third 3-day trip I have taken with Outdoor Odysseys and it, once again, was truly amazing! My friend and I keep coming back for the extra knowledgable, fun and safe guides, the delicious food and destinations that are spectacular. The money spent is more than well worth it as all the scruptious meals are prepared for you,... More

I live in Seattle and planned this tour with some out of state friends. From the very beginning Tom was very flexible and accommodating to my needs, allowing my friends to sign up at their leisure over a few month period. The dissemination of information regarding the trip was very organized, thorough and yet concise. This trip exceeded my expectations... More

Sarah and Irene did a wonderful job of guiding and feeding us on this three day trip. This was my wife's and my first trip to the San Juan islands and they are beautiful as we expected. The kayaking was fun as we expected. But better than we expected was the day two flexibility, the delicious meals, and the night... More
