San Juan Island's Original Sea Kayak Outfitters & Guides Since 1980
Kayak Guides/Naturalists

Meet Our Staff

San Juan Kayak Expeditions offers something no other sea kayak outfitter can: an owner/guide who has been leading multi-day sea kayak adventures in the San Juans for 38 years!  Using his extensive experience and knowledge, Tim puts each of his carefully chosen guides through rigorous training and then an assistant-guide apprenticeship program.  Our guide turnover rate is the lowest in the industry! When your guide is ready to lead your trip, you can rest assured that he or she has a solid foundation of experience and knowledge to make your trip safe (all guides are CPR/first aid certified), educational and adventurous.

Our guides are simply the very best! Please join us for our 39th season!
