The Philosophy

It’s easy to love what we do. As a professional kayak guide, it’s a dream job to have the opportunity to share the San Juan Islands with people from all over the world. Our passion for kayaking and for the area motivates us to work hard to provide you with the best possible San Juan Island kayak tour experience.

We strongly believe small groups provide a superior kayaking experience and our standard kayak trips never have more than eight guests. This allows you to have ready access to our guides so that they can easily share their knowledge and expertise with you. In small groups, we have less impact on the wildlife and the beaches and in return provide a safer, more personalized tour.

We want you to have the best possible kayaking experience on San Juan Island, so we provide the best equipment the industry has to offer. Each kayaking tour includes fiberglass two-person kayaks, dry bags, and waterproof pants and tops. On our multi-day kayak tours, you will be treated to the most comprehensively outfitted kayak tour on San Juan Island. From fresh food from local farms to high-quality paddling and camping equipment we provide more equipment than any other company on San Juan Island.
