About Discovery Sea Kayaks

Excellence in Safety and Quality Kayak Tours on San Juan Island

The Company

Discovery Sea Kayaks is a small sea kayak tour company based in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. When we started in 2002, we were a small group of people passionate about paddling and sharing the outdoor experience with others.

As time passed, we decided to keep our staff small and to adhere to our small company roots. Our small group of guides are well-trained, talented, and outgoing individuals with diverse backgrounds. We believe that they are the best kayak guides in the industry.

Sharing our knowledge about the San Juan Islands is our Passion.

Our mission is to provide the best San Juan Island kayaking experience in one of the world’s best kayaking and whale watching destinations. We take pride in our work and strive to be the best, not only in the San Juan Islands but in the outdoor industry as a whole.

The Philosophy

It’s easy to love what we do. As sea kayakers, 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 experience.

We believe small groups provide a superior kayaking experience and our standard 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 also have less impact on the wildlife and the beaches, and provide a safer, more personalized tour.

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