A bit about the San Juan kayak tours
- Half-Day Kayak Tours: Travel along the west shore of San Juan Island with views of the Olympics Mountains. Pass by historic land markers and learn about the early coast history. This is an excellent option for wildlife and whale watching.
- Full-Day Kayak Tours: Spend the day exploring the west side of San Juan Island. With more time to explore than on our Half-Day Tour, we take our time as we move along the coast. Midway through the tour enjoy a break on a small pocket beach with a hike to Lime Kiln State Park.
- Sunset Kayak Tours: The most popular option for photographers. Enjoy and relax at the end of the day with a beautiful San Juan Island sunset. Take advantage of less boat traffic, calm seas, and quiet time as the sun sets over Vancouver Island.
- Bioluminescence Kayak Tours: Truly a unique kayak tour. We depart late just before sunset so having accommodation on the island is a must. We select the best night with the smallest moon phases of the month to ensure a good dark night.
