I highly reccomend San Juan kayak expeditions for your next adventure! My girlfriend and I did the 3 day kayak tour through the San Juans. Tim and Sally provided very detailed maps and directions for us to foloow on our journey. It was a trip we will never forget. Since it was late in the season we had the camping spots to ourselves. We saw seals, porpoises, star fish, as well as some deer and raccoons. We will definitely be back in the future for another memorable adventure!

We went on a 4 hour Kayak trip. Guide was fantastic and very helpful. As my wife and I were more experienced and comfortable he let us go at our own pace. We saw seals and had a wonderful Kayak trip. Highly recommend it if you like being on the water and close to nature.

We booked a private kayak tour with the San Juan Kayak Expeditions this past September. The booking process was super easy and everyone was amazingly helpful. We ended up booking a private tour bc of travel timing and it wasn’t much more than the normal group tours! Our guide was Will who was super knowledgeable and has been kayaking basically since birth. He gave us wonderful tips and tricks, as well as great info about the wildlife and scenery around us. He really made the trip so enjoyable. He was paired with our elderly father and that just made his day! We had such a fabulous experience that should we ever be in that area again, we will absolutely book another trip with SJ Kayaking!

We rented a sea kayak and had it delivered to our rental house on San Juan Island in late August. This was the second time we have rented from Tim and Sally. It was easy to arrange and the staff was very helpful with all of the safety information and tips that we needed. We had another great experience - saw a lot of whales, seals, sea stars, eagles, etc. We had a great time. The kayak was in great shape and we had no problems.T We will rent with Tim and Sally again! Thanks! Mike Bird
