5-Day The “Ultimate”

Kayak Tour in San Juan Islands

5-Day The Ultimate Kayak Tour - Reserve your spot!


Remote campsites, scenic vistas, wild coastlines and the chance to see every critter that lives in these parts are all a part of the package!  This trip is only for fit, adventurous people willing to accept a challenge. You must be active, muscle-toned and ready for excitement. For those who meet these criteria awaits an adventure with cozy campfires, sea glass hunting, whale watching, sea kayak sailing and scrumptious camp cuisine.  Marvelous sunset hikes and bioluminescent paddles will make this trip the highlight of your summer!

The “Ultimate!” is scheduled only when the tides are just right to aid us with favorable tidal current each day of the trip. Learning about tidal flows and observing the beauty of a moving sea adds greatly to your education and enjoyment of this unique environment. Our guides are experts at using tides whenever possible to sweep us along coastlines and make open-water crossings. Wind and/or rough seas may require prolonged paddling at times, so all participants must be fit and have a can-do attitude.

Camping at a uniquely beautiful, seaside campsite each night gives us the chance to explore special islands. By kayak and on foot we’ll experience Jones Island, Sucia Island, Matia Island, Clark Island, Turn Island, Yellow Island and Obstruction Pass (we avoid overcrowded, damp and dark Stuart Island). In between these locations lie majestic sandstone cliffs, pristine beaches, dense coniferous forest and intertidal abundance. We’ll hike coastal and old-growth forest trails, relax in hammocks we carry along and enjoy sunset views that will astound.

If you desire to see the beauty of the San Juan islands, I highly recommend the 5 day kayak trip. Wonderful camping and rest spots, views of Mount Baker, unique shore line and wildlife. Equipment was first rate along with our guide. Had time each day for beautiful forest hikes and sunset viewing. Looking forward to returning in the future.
