Brian was an excellent guide on our three hour kayak tour of the islands. We looked at the map together before setting out. He explained several route options and what was special about each - we made the final call on the route we took....More

Anyone who complains about not seeing whales doesn't appreciate nature and the excitement that comes with its randomness. This company is THE only company to paddle with. We had the time of our lives. The owner guided us and we had great company and beautiful...More
We took an overnight kayaking trip recently with the Groupons we bought. While the scenery was beatiful and Jones Island (where we camp overnight) was great, we were disapponted in the quality of this trip.
While we understand that you cannot control nature whether you...More

We are so sorry to hear you did not enjoy your adventure. When you returned we wish we could have heard this as you stated how much fun you had and how beautiful it all was. The real issue is the hurry and the whales....More
We took a 3h kayaking trip with Orcas Outdoors. While our young guide was friendly and knowledgeable, I have to say that I am quite disappointed in the company advertising the tour as a "whale watching" tour. We did not see any whales in the...More

August 17 the whales were out in front of our dock. We are very sorry you did not get to see them. We cannot tell the schedule of the whales. They are wild animals. They are on their own schedule.
We just returned from the overnight kayak trip to Jones Island and we could not imagine a more amazing time! Everything was so wonderful. Ryan and Amee, the owner/operators are friendly and knowledgeable and truly made the experience more enjoyable. It's easy to tell they...More

We did the overnight trip to Jones Island with Ryan and a great group of people. Ryan, our guide, took the time to explain the area, where we were going, and various wildlife. He knows the area really really well. I highly recommend Orcas Outdoors...More

We went on a kayaking trip to Jones Island (from Orcas Island) with Ryan and Amee, the owners. I am not an experienced kayaker, and I was very satisfied with both the time to Jones Island (about two hours) and the difficulty (easy enough, especially...More
