Four Day Islands Adventurer
You’ll explore the coastlines of more than 20 islands, large and small, paddle and sail your sea kayak up to 37 miles and see shores of awe-inspiring beauty and variation: the rocky cliffs of Speiden Island rising hundreds of feet out of the ocean; the warm, sandy beaches and impenetrable forest of Henry Island; the spectacular hiking and vistas of American Camp National Park.
This is an ideal expedition for kayaking with orca whales(we spend a day and a half paddling and camping in prime orca whale habitat), stellar sea lions, porpoise and other marine mammals and to observe the varied flora and fauna of the San Juan Islands.
Four days gives you time to hone your sea kayaking skills, more opportunities to experience the joy of sea kayak sailing and to really get into the rhythm of a sea kayaking expedition. You will enjoy three spectacular and unique campsites, savor scrumptious cuisine and see breathtaking colors on our sunset hikes and paddles!

“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.”
