This was my first time sea kayaking, and Sam, my trips leader, made it a great experience! He was very funny and talkative to everyone, and very enthusiastic about kayaking and orcas. He made sure to explain all safety measures with the group, how the equipment worked with each person, also providing extra attention to first timers. Sam even offered... More

Went out with Pat, Marianna (may have this wrong - sorry!) & Tatyana (again my apologies, was partying the whole week) and had a really great time. Pat knows his stuff & is eager to explain/share wisdom on the wildlife & surrounding area. Wish we had more time on San Juan, but happy we ended up spending it with these... More

We signed up for the two day kayak trip over the 4th of July. Although we only got to see one orca off in the distance, we were still able to see a lot of other wildlife including bald eagles and harbor seals. The weather was perfect, the food was great, and our guide Sam, was very friendly and very... More

I recently got back from a 5 day trip, and it was more than I could of ever asked for! We had an amazing, informative, energetic guide, Matt Peck. I would highly recommend him if booking a trip! He is an excellent cook, and helped out with loading and unloading the kayaks! This trip was a graduation gift, and it... More

We signed up for the day kayak excursion from Friday Harbor. Martine was wonderful at helping us get the excursion booked over the phone. The trip itself was nothing short of phenomenal. We encountered minke whales, bald eagles, harbor seals and the orcas of J-Pod (also quite possibly a humpback!). I had so much fun on this trip and learned... More

We met at the rendezvous point at 7:30am as planned and the Sea Quest van pulled up by 7:45 before our scheduled leave time at 8am. We met the team leader and guide Sam, along with Jill his right hand.They both seemed happy and were... More

We did the two day trip and it was a blast! Markus was our guide and did a great job being enthusiastic and teaching us kayaking skills. We were able to catch J-pod twice, once while they were hunting and on their way back they were playing. We did some beach combing in between and was able to check out... More

This was such a wonderful experience! I first began my search to go kayaking with Orcas about a year and half before my actual trip date. To say I was excited to do this was an understatement. I did the 3 day camping/kayaking trip and it was AMAZING!!! I am not a camper AT ALL, and this was a great... More

Seaquest is definitely the best choice for kayaking on San Juan Island. We were able to be fit in at the last minute on a 1 day tour. Plenty of safety information and instruction was given before launching at San Juan County Park. Our guide, Elizabeth, was both entertaining and very knowledgable about the plants, animals, birds and history of... More

Prior to this trip, I had never been sea kayaking and was not sure what to expect when booking the full day tour. The trip ended up being one of my favorite things from a week-long stay in the Pacific Northwest! Our tour guide Sam did a fantastic job making sure everyone knew what they were doing, and was able... More
