About Small Group Sea Kayaking:
We believe that in order to ensure the best possible experience, a kayak tour company should limit the amount of guests on each trip. Our day trips are limited to 8-10 guests per guide. Our multi-day tours are limited to 4 guests per guide, with a maximum of 8 guests on the trip (bring 4 or more guests and we will close the trip and you will have a private kayak camping adventure!).

Sea kayaking out and into the San Juans under your own power is one of the most rewarding kayak experiences you can have here in Washington. Treat yourself to an Anacortes Sea Kayaking Vacation!

Anacortes, on Fidalgo Island, is known as the home-port of the San Juan Islands. Convenient access from the mainland makes Anacortes a natural destination for visitors to the San Juan Islands. There is no need to take the Washington State Ferry in order to experience the San Juans. Driving directly to us puts you in control of your vacation time.

Typical Day

Sea Kayaking at Burrows Island: Fantastic views of the San Juans, the Olympic Mountains, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca makes this exciting sea kayak trip one that you will be sure to remember. Burrows Island is one of the best places in the San Juan Island area to go paddling with porpoise, and the seals are a lot of fun too! Most trips paddle out to the west side of this island where a historic lighthouse reminds us of an earlier time in the history of the San Juan Islands. Come and experience Burrows Island, the most convenient kayak tour in the San Juan Islands.
