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

Will Owen

Will (26 yrs.) is a Washington native with a Bachelor of Science degree in environmental science and marine ecology from Western Washington University.  He has completed an internship with NOAA studying and kayaking in estuaries to ascertain the health of those Northwest ecosystems.  He is mostkayaking with orcas in San Juan islands comfortable in a sea kayak but has recently spent a winter on the ski slopes of Utah, where he was cold a lot.

His sea kayaking skills are at the top of his profession, so be careful, he might “pop a roll” on your kayak tour with us.    Will is the only person we know who has paddled through Deception Pass’s “Chasm of Doom!”  He has led sea kayaking tours with us for four years.

Will’s easy going nature, patience and warm heart make him a pleasure to paddle with.
