Our Guest Testimonials
Thank you for a great kayaking trip! George and I had a blast! I was having happy dreams of kayaking in the islands for a full week after getting home. We enjoyed your company and felt safe under your watch. And you do boil a great kettle of water…ha ha! Food was fantastic! We sure enjoyed our group and I know half of the fun is helping out and being a team. You are so right about that! Your gear is excellent, well cared for and you have an organized system. Everyhing was amazing and sailing was a real kick! Thank you, Tim! We will certainly recommend you to our friends. Would like to be there all over again….we brought very happy memories home!” George and Sue Kolb Bend, OR
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
Wonderful trip, Tim! Your knowledge and expertise made it a special time and we all enjoyed learning from you! There will definitely be more sea kayaking in our future! Great job from start to finish! Jennifer Jose Cincinnati, OH
I can easily say that my experiences with this company and its employees was one of the best memories I have from my adventure. We saw tons of wildlife on the first day including bald eagles, harbor seals, black oystercatchers and many others. After we set up camp and ate, we set out for a sunset paddle. This was a highlight of the trip and I'll never forget how calm it got at night. I will definitely book more tours with San Juan Kayak Expeditions until I feel comfortable enough to rent a few kayaks from Tim and his crew and guide my own trip with some friends.

My wife and I took a full-day kayak tour with Rob last July. We’re the ones who used a gift certificate that you donated to a school in Spokane. We wanted to let you know what a memorable experience that was, and how much we appreciate you generosity. Rob did an excellent job as our guide. He was professional, knowledgeable, patient and had a sense of humor. I have spent many years in the San Juans, but that was my first experience kayaking. It gave me a new perspective being so close to the water. Thank you Tim and Rob! Matt and Susan Spokane, WA
Just a quick Thanks for the great little adventure. My son loved it and so did I. Great boats, nice itinerary, we’ll do it again, my oldest son and I are thinking about late summer. Bryan Crawford Port Angeles, WA
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
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
I am glad Claire and I were able to participate in the final leg of your 25th season. The San Juans are quite wonderful to explore and we enjoyed our little taste of the islands very much. Your equipment was excellent and the assistance we received from you was much appreciated. Moving up our timeline at the last minute added tremendously to our trip. Hopefully, we’ll be back someday. Much continued success and happiness. Joe & Claire Hageman New Bern, NC
“I have done two trips with San Juan Kayak Expeditions. They have very safe and fun guides who work really hard. I brought a group of 14 high school students last summer and EVERYONE had a blast AND a great experience. The guides went above and beyond to find interesting things for our group to see and do. We had a real adventure! I will bring back another group and will use San Juan Kayaks for any trip I do in the future.” Greg Kelderman, Applegate, California - Summer 2015
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
Thank you so much for your very thorough instructions and trip details for our first kayak trip! It was really incredible and not as scary as I though it might be! Your kayaks are stable and I felt very safe!! We look forward to renting kayaks from you again and will definitely recommend you to our friends!! It was a blast! Frank and Heidi Lyman Seattle, WA
