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

Tesa Johnson

My husband and I took our first trip with Tim in 1988. We had such a wonderful time that we returned last summer to do a 4 day trip with our three boys, ages 15,19 and 22. This trip was an outstanding adventure for all of us! As we paddled along from one island to the next, we spotted seals lounging on rocks and poking their heads up out of the water, while Tim pointed out bald eagles perched in trees high above us. We even saw orcas spouting from a distance. We enjoyed the camaraderie of mealtime with new friends, and joking and laughing through games of Farkle by the campfire. The highlight of the trip came when we hoisted the sails (that were specially designed by Tim) and sailed our kayaks!!  It was exhilarating to be skimming across the water with the colorful sails of 6 kayaks billowing in the air. Tim’s sense of humor, incredible knowledge of the San Juan Islands and fun-loving spirit made this an unforgettable trip that will always be a treasured family memory.
