We started San Juan Kayak 40 years ago and we still lead trips today - we love this place and we love the people.

San Juan Kayak Expeditions, now in its 40th season (wow), is a small (locally owned and operated), ecology-minded, one-of-a-kind kayak touring company which makes its home in the San Juan Islands.

  • It is a company whose  guides are experienced island paddlers and outdoor naturalists!

  • It is an outfitter that offers a most exciting addition to the sport – sea kayak sailing!

  • It is an outfitter whose owner has led over 450 multi-day trips in the San Juan Islands and has paddled more miles here than anyone on the planet!

  • It is a local, well-respected company that specializes in guided 3, 4, and 5 day multi-day sea kayaking expeditions; guided half-day and full day tours in Griffin Bay; kayaking day tours with whales on San Juan Island’s west side and multi-day rentals!

  • Our two,  three and four day trips spend a day and a half in prime orca whale territory, and give you the best chance to paddle with our resident pods!

Because we are a small operation, we are able to keep our prices low without sacrificing service, quality of equipment and professionalism. We run a well organized yet simple operation honed by experience, and that means a positive experience for you at an affordable rate.

We love and respect the natural beauty of this small corner of the world. Our enthusiasm for these islands has allowed us to share them with you! If you have any questions regarding your trip, things to do while you are here on the island or anything you think a local could help you with - please feel free to give us a call!
