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

Simply Kayaking!

America Camp KayakingBeing the original sea kayaking tour company in the San Juan Islands, we’ve seen a lot of changes in the industry. Since we started in 1980, companies have come along and grown by offering kayak/bike tours, kayak beer-tasting tours, whale watching/power boat tours, inn-to-inn kayak tours, wine-tasting kayak tours, kayaking and zip-line tours, etc.

We have opted for a different approach: simply sea kayaking trips! For thirty-one years now, we have specialized in hand-crafted, guided sea kayaking expeditions and self-guided rentals meaning we can focus our energies into providing you with the best kayaking experience possible! Our half-day, full-day and sunset sea kayaking adventures paddle where few others do. Our multi-day trips cover the best of a wide variety of coastlines, campsites and wildlife areas in the San Juan Islands. Our sea kayak rentals supply you with top-quality equipment, professional instruction, personally written itineraries of your route and unprecedented comprehensive service!

We know the San Juans better than anyone, and we give you that advantage on every one of our tours, expeditions and rentals. Simply sea kayaking – it’s what we do!
