Multi-Day Kayaking & Bicycling Inn to Inn Expeditions

It is safe to say that my vacation with Crystal Seas was, hands-down, the best vacation I have ever been on. First off, the beauty of the San Juan Islands is unparalleled. Secondly, everything was handled perfectly by Crystal Seas. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about a wide variety of things, from botany to bike repair. Everything could be done at our pace. I remember getting off the ferry on the first day and being greeted by our guide. I was a little nervous not knowing what to expect. She helped us get situated in our hotel, then we got our bike gear on and took a beautiful ride which ended up at a great old lighthouse where we ate fantastic picnic foods prepared by our guide. The hotels Crystal Seas works with are top of the line, and the restaurants where we ate dinner were phenomenal. We also went kayaking. We saw bald eagles, sea lions, otters, etc. It was really unbelievable. You should see our pictures! I would take another trip with this company without question any time. Everyone at Crystal Seas was extremely helpful and accessible ahead of time in preparing for the trip.

Our Inn to Inn Multi-Sport Expeditions are the Perfect Choice

Each night retreat to luxurious inns and dine at exquisite restaurants. Few people get to experience each island's unique style the way that you will. We kayak the coastline of San Juan Island's west side where wildlife is abundant and cycle along quiet country roads to views of the snowcapped Olympic Peninsula, stopping at a lavender farm and vineyard. Orcas Island offers cycling through Moran State Park where you can enjoy a panaramic view of all of the islands atop Mount Constitution, hike around lakes down to waterfalls, and paddle through a small group of islands knows as the Wasp Islands. Lopez Island is the smallest of the major San Juan Islands and offers kayaking along mellow shores in search of bald eagles and cycling past organic farms to unpopluated beaches.You will get to know these islands inside and out through cycling and kayaking.

We provide virtually everything...

Here are some of the items which we provide for our guests:

  • all kayaking and bicycling gear, weather and safety gear
  • a detailed pre-trip information packet
  • all drinks*, snacks and meals*

We provide you with all accommodations

...we have carefully chosen the friendliest, most luxurious accommodations that the San Juan Islands offer. We have built relationships with the innkeepers and feel that you will not only be pleased but you will not want to leave at the end of your stay!

Our excellent knowledgeable and friendly nature/kayak/bicycle guides...

... we strongly believe that an outstanding guide can make the difference between a good trip and a fabulous trip, therefore we place a lot of emphasis on using the best guides available. We pride ourselves on our choice of guides. We choose guides who are people persons, friendly, knowledgeable, have a great attitude, are excellent leaders, great teachers and who love what they do.

This lesson includes paddling technique, sea kayaking safety, biking techniques, biking safety, becoming familiar with our safety gear and other helpful and necessary preparation for our expedition.

Small personal groups...

...a great trip involves many factors. One of these is the group size. A smaller group is safer on and off the water, allows for more interactions between the guides and guests and gives our guests a chance to know each other. Furthermore, we can also adjust and modify the trip to the individual desires and interests of the group, allowing our guests to participate in various activities ranging from birding to advanced kayaking, to photography, to hiking. For all these reasons and more we keep our regularly scheduled Inn to Inn Multi-Sport Expedition group size to 10 guests and 2 guides.

Sleeping at luxurious inns on different islands each night...

...offers you a chance to experience each unique island style. We will stay at the the Friday Harbor House or Tucker House in Friday Harbor and Outlook Inn or Turtleback Farm Inn on Orcas Island.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How long of a drive is San Juan Island from Seattle?

    We are about a 2 hour drive from Seattle to Anacortes and then a beautiful 1 hour 20 minute ferry ride to Friday Harbor. Arrive to the Anacortes ferry terminal about 30-45 minutes before scheduled departure time if you are walking on the ferry and 1.5 to 2 hours before scheduled departure time if you are bringing your car to San Juan Island. We have a shuttle from the ferry in Friday Harbor to Snug Harbor on Mitchell Bay where our tours depart from, for those who wish to leave their cars at the Anacortes ferry terminal. For ferry fees and schedules visit the Washington State Ferries website. You can also fly to the San Juan Islands from Seattle, click on Kenmore Air & San Juan Airlines

  • Do you take beginners?

    Yes. All of our tours are designed with the beginner in mind. On all of our tours we give a safety & kayak lesson. All of our tours are guided so you will have an instructor near you the whole time.

  • What happens if there is a single person or an odd numbered group?

    We use tandem (double) kayaks for all of our San Juan Island tours. If there is an odd number then one person will be in a kayak with a guide or someone from another odd number party.

  • Can you accommodate my food requirements on your multi-day tours?

    Yes. We will send you a questionnaire when you make your reservation and our guides will plan accordingly.

  • Will I see whales on my tour?

    Our kayak route offers one of the best opportunities in the world to see wild orca whales from a kayak because we paddle 1-2 days (depending on trip type) in a federally designated whale habitat. Since we can’t guarantee that they will show up on every kayak trip, we offer the option to increase the odds to over 90% by spending one afternoon aboard a whale watch cruise aboard the Odyssey. The resident J, K, and L pods of orcas have recently been put on the endangered species list so our goal is to respect them, abide by the guidelines and not to paddle aggressively into their path. We will give you a lesson at the beginning of the tour for appropriate kayaking behavior near wildlife.

  • What kinds of wildlife could we see?

    Some of the local flora and fauna are Bald Eagles, Cormorants, Black Oystercatchers, Pigeon Guillemots, Pacific Harbor Seals, Orcas (Killer Whales), Dall's Porpoise, Great Blue Herons, Ochre Sea Stars, Blood Stars, Pacific Madrones, Douglas-firs, Western Cedars, Bull Kelp forests and Eel Grass beds.

  • Are all meals and drinks included in the cost of the trip?

    We cover all meals on our 2 and 3 day trips, from lunch on the first day to lunch on the last day. On our 4, 5 and 6 day trips we allow one night for our guests to explore Friday Harbor on thier own, this evening's dinner is not included in the cost of the trip. Our guides will give you some suggestions of places that are popular among the locals. We provide all our guests with refeshing, non alchohlic, beverages throughout the tour. If you have a favorite drink that you would like us to have on hand, please note your favorite drink in the questionairre you return to us. Our guides will also provide the group with a 'happy hour' beverage after the days activity. We provide Washington state wines or if you perfer beer, we can pick up a cold 6 pack of your favorite Washington variety.
