Lime Kiln Half Day Kayak Tour

Reserve Your Spot Here


This trip packs a lot into a short time! Launching from San Juan County Park into our federally designated Whale Sanctuary on the west side of San Juan Island, we spend a few hours paddling pristine coastline and enjoying spectacular views of the Olympic Mountain range and Vancouver Island, Canada. Besides killer whales, we also keep our eyes peeled for humpback whales, minke whales, Dall’s and harbor porpoise, river otters, harbor seals, and Stellar sea lions. Bald eagles soar overhead and seabirds forage along the eddy lines.

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!
