“Great trip to Sucia Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We spent the weekend with Mike and Dylan paddling in and around Sucia Island. We had a mixture of somewhat experienced paddlers and little kids. The choice of routes was great, we saw baby seals and otters; campsite was great! Everything was taken care of right down to having cream for our coffee. I would highly recommend Mike & Elakah!!

“Great weekend trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We had a great weekend on Sucia Island with Mike and Elakah Expeditions. My daughter, who can be a bit timid about such adventures, loved it and wants to build her own kayak now! Great food, local knowledge, accommodated little children as well as adults, all around great time. Highly recommended!

“Great experience Kayaking on Lummi Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

My wife and I are novice Kayakers, and hadnt been out for a few years.
We decided before venturing back into the Ocean we should get some local Knowledge of tide, currents and dangers, and refresh our resue techniques.
We discussed with Mike from Elakah tours and he met us on Lummi Island on time and ready to go.
We started off going over some maps and understanding terminology of nauitical terms like ebbing tides and eddy lines and what causes them and how to see them and avoid if necesary.
Then we proceeded to go into the water, we kayaked for about a couple of hrs and found some local sights, and went over paddling techniques and general kayakmanship.
Finished off with Rescue techniques, great experinece met his wife and daughters who were there to help, its a family business.
Most people would love to trade jobs.
We now feel really comfortable!! Thanks Mike
I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Mike and his family at Elakah Expeditions.

“Thanks for the great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We took a half day trip on Lummi Island. Mike and Cora made this such a fun and relaxing trip. My husband doesn't swim and was anxious. We felt like we were in very capable hands and enjoyed the wildlife and local historical sites pointed out along the way. Highly recommend this trip and Elakah Expeditions!
