Washington's San Juan Islands Kayak Tours
April, May, June, July, August, September and early October
Kayak San Juan Island and the outer San Juan Islands for an experience of a lifetime. Paddle along the evergreen cloaked coastlines of the Pacific Northwest’s San Juan Islands and be surrounded by snowcapped mountains in virtually every direction. On our kayak tours in the San Juan Islands, you may witness the magnificent breach of an orca (killer whale) or hear the graceful blows of foraging porpoise passing by. Watch as a bald eagle glides peacefully overhead against the evening sky. The San Juan Islands are the hidden gems of the Pacific Northwest because of the great weather, clear deep waters, clean and unpopulated beaches, abundance of wildlife and close proximity to Seattle and Vancouver B.C. To truly get away from it all, come to the San Juan Islands and embark on a memorable kayak tour.
We get half of the annual rainfall of Seattle because of our geographic location. Most of our days are sunny and warm during our kayaking season. The San Juan Islands are unique because of the possibility to kayak with killer whales nearby. Although we do not guarantee that you will see orcas when you are kayaking San Juan Island with us, we do offer the highest opportunity available to see orcas in the wild from a kayak because of our launching location, trip routes, and length of tours. Our tours depart from private docks located on the western side of San Juan Island. On our 2-6 day inn to inn tours, we kayak Orcas Island and kayak Lopez Island as well. Kayak in Washington with Crystal Seas Kayaking!
