Our Guest Testimonials
Thanks, Tim! I had a fantastic time and truly appreciated how thoughtful and organized your three day trip was! It was definitely the best way to experience sea kayaking for the first time! The equipment was first-rate, your knowledge was invaluable and I appreciated your direction and encouragement as our guide! I will definitely recommend your trip and hope to be back! Julie Willenbrock Richardson, TX
We want you to know we had such a great time and your instructions were invaluable! The weather was great and the campsites were amazing! We are hooked and will most definitely rent from you again but perhaps will bring friends with us next time! Christina Lewis Tacoma, WA
Truly memorable! I don’t remember the names of all the islands we saw, but I’ll remember their rugged beauty! Loved the porpoise swimming around us during our sunset paddle, the bizarre madrona trees and the laughter around the campfires! Everyone was so friendly, fun, and helpful. I’ll keep with me many lifelong memories and friends. Bill Conchi Kenmore, WA
Everyone had a safe and enjoyable trip this past weekend! Thanks for your comprehensive service, and I will recommend you to anyone I encounter wishing to rent kayaks in the San Juan Islands. Jeff Thompson The Dalles, OR
It was a pleasure paddling with you! I enjoyed the “lessons” about bull kelp and paddling strokes! I am impressed by your life story and inspired to stay on the water myself, as it brings me much comfort. Thank you again for a memorable experience! The trip was everything I imagined and more! Laura Mar Cambridge, MA
Sally and Tim responded to my call, and put together a fabulous morning of kayaking for 78 cycling enthusiasts. As a fellow operator of active-tours, I can recommend them without reservation. Bill McCready, President and Founder Santana Cycles - Summer, 2015
For my dear cousin’s wedding, I collaborated with Sally to coordinate a special kayak trip for the wedding guests. Her professionalism and flexibility made the planning process a delight. Everything from picking a special launch time to choosing a good spot for optimal wildlife watching was made super simple by these wonderful folks. Our guides were friendly, knowledgeable and very skilled at getting our fun-loving and sometimes rambunctious group out on the water and back in time for our rehearsal dinner. The moment we arrived at the check-in kiosk, we were warmly welcomed by Sally and our guides, and that friendly spirit made the trip memorable for everyone. From start to finish, we had a fabulous time with San Juan Kayak Expeditions! Delara Marshbank Westminster, Co - Summer 2015
It was wonderful getting to know everyone! The leadership, the camaradarie of the group and the resulting experience made this an amazing trip! It was the highlight of my summer! Mark Francis Seattle, WA
Thanks again for a fabulous trip! You helped make our experience in the San Juans very special! It was a pleasure paddling with you! You are a wonderful guide full of knowledge, expertise and leadership skills! Yeeha! Julie Jorling Salt Lake City, UT
The philosophy of this company is light years away from the usual assembly line, tourist in-tourist out company. We had an incredibly fun day. So much fun in fact, that the next night we took the Sunset Tour. What can I say beautiful, awesome, hilarious, breathtaking, an indelible family memory for years to come! I'm chomping at the bit to get back and experience a 4-day expedition.Thanks for the spectacular memories SJKE! Huge Thumbs Up! Trip Advisor Review 2016
“I am so glad you encouraged me to take the four day trip. The spectacular beauty of the islands could not be experienced any other way. I felt so strong! From the wake-up flute to the campfire at night, each day was a gem. Thank you, thank you.” Jane Gilbreath Kansas City, MO
I took my son on your kayak tour in 2007. We had the best vacation of our lives! I want to go again! Janine Reeder Denver, CO
