Kayaking Full Day Tours

Paddle With Whales With Our Orca Kayaking Full Day Tours in San Juan Islands


Enjoy a scenic drive to San Juan Island’s west side and launch with us into prime killer whale country! We will maximize our time to view wildlife such as bald eagles, river otters,porpoise and harbor seals and, if luck is on our side, orca whales! For a different perspective, we’ll take a short walk on a spectacular coastal trail and, from an elevated viewpoint, enjoy a complimentary lunch with nothing but islands and ocean as far as the eye can see!  Diverse wildlife, stunning vistas, and spectacular coastline make this an experience to cherish.

Spoiler alert: Orca whales are wild and unpredictable and travel up to 100 miles per day. Sometimes they come by and sometimes they don’t. Be prepared to enjoy an exhilarating day on the water among some of the world’s most beautiful islands, to learn sea kayaking skills and get to know your guides and fellow paddlers. If whales are near, we will have icing on our cake!

We had a great kayaking trip with San Juan Kayak Expeditions. Our group was small and our guide was very knowledgeable and catered to our interests and abilities. Plus their equipment is the best on the island. I highly recommend a trip with San Juan Kayak Expeditions and we will book with them again.
