What's the best time to kayak on San Juan Island?

The most popular months for kayaking San Juan Island are June through September. However, we also have kayak tours during the “Shoulder Season” from April through May and the first half of October. The two busiest months for kayaking are July and August.

What sets Discovery's Bioluminescence Kayak Tour apart?

Good question. As with all of our kayak tours, we ensure you have the most professional kayak guide. We have been operating the Bioluminescence Kayak Tours longer than any outfitter on San Juan Island. With years of experience, we have perfected the operations to provide you with the best experience.

Why are Half Day Tours more popular than Full Day Tours?

Both are great kayaking tours. But the Half Day Tour has more departure times that fit more easily into vacation schedules. The route is exactly the same as the Full Day Tour. The main difference is our lunch stop on the Full Day Tour.

Can beginners join a sea kayak tour?

Yes, most of the paddlers we take are beginners. We do not require any previous experience to join any of our kayak tours. With that said, kayaking is an activity that requires participation. But all of our tours are safe for anyone to join.
