A Message From Tim
“If you are active and full of adventure, our day and multi-day expeditions are for you! If you enjoy camping and would you like to move silently through the water with the power of your own body, our multi-day tours or rentals are a perfect fit! If you would enjoy a close encounter with orca whales, porpoise, stellar sea lions, mink, otter, big-horned sheep, prong-horned antelope and a plethora of bald eagles, we can put you there! If you would like to join a fantastic group of people and spend blue-sky days riding rivers of tidal current and sea kayak sailing with consistent winds come paddle with us! Let’s gather sea glass, play horseshoes, read a book in a cozy nylon hammock and take a sunset hike or sunset paddle! If you would like to see many of the highlights of the San Juan Islands from the best vantage point possible – a sea kayak, 2014 is your chance to join us! We’ve been in business for 32 years for a reason! Come along for an exciting ride this summer!! Check our 2014 Trip Schedule for dates!”
“If you wish to rent double kayaks and embark on your own self-guided expedition, we continue to offer the highest quality boats and gear and the most comprehensive service in the industry. With Tim’s help planning your trip and a detailed, personally written itinerary in hand, you will be assured of a safe, rewarding exploration of the San Juan Islands.”
“I am especially excited about next season, as it will be our 34th year of offering guided sea kayaking expeditions and tours in the San Juan Islands! This milestone is unprecedented in the sea kayaking industry! We are proud of yet humbled by that achievement! Stop by our convenient new Sea Kayak Center kiosk directly across from the ferry dock in town. Look for our two umbrellas and counter top between The Doctor’s Office and Friday’s Crab House.
Try our exciting West Side Whales Ho! Six Hour Tour(lunch included) for a chance to encounter orca whales in the wild! Enjoy the scenic tranquility of our Griffin Bay Half Day Tour, our ever-popular Griffin Bay Full Day Tour(lunch and a spectacular hike included) or zen out to the last light of day on our Griffin Bay Sunset Tour!
For those looking for more adventure, we also offer a fantastic Two-Day Overnighter-Orca Quest, a mellow Whale Sanctuary Two-Day Overnighter and custom All Women trips in addition to our ever-popular Three Day Coastal Explorer and Four Day Islands Adventurer expeditions!”
“Also I am enthusiastic about this website! I hope that you find it informative and easy to surf. I trust that the photos and galleries will give you a feel for what my trips are like, as each photo was taken by a past client. The Best Photos of 2013 gallery is now full of client pics from our 33rd season’s trips. See what we have been up to lately! Enjoy!”
“In addition, my Whale Sanctuary Two-Day Overnighter, Three-Day Coastal Explorer and Four-Day Islands Adventurer expeditions continue to offer a final night island campground reserved exclusively for San Juan Kayak Expeditions! This site is a small, quaint island perched right on the edge of orca country! For one night, we will have an entire island to ourselves!”
“Our expeditions are a culmination of all we have learned over the past thirty-three years of living and paddling in the San Juan Islands, and they continue to evolve as we inquire, observe and learn each season. The very fact that we have offered multi-day trips in the San Juan Islands for over thirty years is unique to the entire sea kayaking industry! Our trips attract fun, well-rounded folks with diverse backgrounds, can-do attitudes and a love of adventure. Our guide’s perfect safety record is a result of experienced leadership and quality equipment. Our attention to detail and trip planning is unequaled anywhere else! Our sea kayaking expeditions minimize our footprint on the island environment.”
“Our knowledge of this small corner of the world allows us to provide you with the best that the San Juan Islands have to give! Our committment to offer you a high quality experience is taken seriously. We dedicate ourselves to and work hard toward that goal each year!”
May the tide be with you,
