Last week I joined a small group of kayakers enjoying an afternoon tour from Doe Bay, where Corrie kept us informed and entertained! Saw many sea stars, red crabs, moon and egg jellyfish, deer on shore, and porpoises!

Guide Corey was fantastic. He was really enthusiastic, pointed out marine life that we wouldn't have noticed and helpful to novice and advance paddlers alike.

This was one of the best experiences of my life! I felt safe and motivated by our guide. She gave us some great pointers and led the way around the little islands outside Deer Harbor:)

We had a lot of fun! We went out to some small islands where boats can't go and saw porpoises, seals and sea lions on the way. It was a very special trip. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Michelle was great and we had an amazing time on the Sucia Island kayak trip. We saw lots of wildlife (herons, sea stars, jellyfish, harbor seals, river otters, and a harbor porpoise). It was a great day.

While whales and kayaking are two of the big attractions to the San Juan Islands, no one can guarantee combining the two. The most likely time to encounter orca whales in the islands is spring and summer – usually mid-May... More

A 3-hour kayak tour anywhere in the San Juans can be a great experience. Winds around the islands don't follow a predictable pattern, but are subject to weather systems coming off the Pacific. Our Deer Harbor location is... More
