3-Hour Sea Kayak Tour in the San Juan Islands

We are the only kayak tour company that is currently able to lead trips to Burrows Island. You will be exploring unique shorelines that few visitors to the islands are able to experience.

Save time, and save money!
The experience does not require the hassles of taking a ferry to San Juan Island. Anacortes, located on Fidalgo Island has two bridges connecting us to the mainland.

Because you are able to drive directly to us your time on the water is maximized. Many tour companies on other islands include a lengthy shuttle ride as a part of their trip thereby reducing the actual time spent kayaking and encountering wildlife.

Single kayaks are available for participants for an additional $25pp. Must be 18 years or older. (Must be requested in advance and is subject to availability.)

Professionally trained guides will see to the details and ensure your comfort.

Kayaking in Deception Pass State Park

No experience is necessary to join this professionally guided kayak trip. Bowman Bay is the perfect place for beginners to feel comfortable paddling on the sea. It offers beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife to seek out. Although this trip is conducted in Deception Pass State Park we avoid the turbulent water near the bridge which is more suitable for expert kayakers. If you plan to visit Deception Pass State Park then don't miss this wonderful opportunity to see it from the unique perspective of a sea kayak!

We did a five-hour tour and it was totally worth it! Our guide was experienced and knowledgeable, making us feel at ease and comfortable. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much wildlife in one day!

We love the wildlife-rich days too. I'm glad that all of those animals cooperated for you. The 5-hour trip is a lot of fun, and it definitely gives you the time to slow down and wait for the critters to appear. Thanks for joining us. Come back again someday!

My friend and I signed up for a full day paddle on Monday. We had a wonderful, safe time! Our guide, Sam, was friendly and knowledgable and made the trip even better! My friend and I each booked a single, because of social distancing, and I'm glad we did. The singles were easy
