Why Go with Crystal Seas?

Our excellent knowledgeable and friendly nature/multi-sport 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.

TIMES AND DISTANCES

We shuttle you from our shop in Friday Harbor at 10 AM on the first day of your trip to our launch area and finish no later than 4:00 PM on your last day. We are happy to accommodate any needs that require variation from our normal schedule including any dietary needs or alterations in return times.

We paddle an average of 8-10 miles during each day which amounts to about 4 to 5 hours on the water.

We bicycle an average of 20-30 miles each day with help from a support van to give you a lift if you need one. Our routes run along the low-traffic country roads, allowing time to stop and check out the amazing views or visit a local art studio along the way.

GOURMET MEALS

Starting with lunch on the first day and ending with lunch on your last day we provide all meals in between. We feel that what you eat can be a major factor in the quality of your expedition and therefore we proute ourselves on the quality and heartiness of our well prepared meals. Prior to your trip we send out food questionnaires and customize all of our meals to the various dietary requirements of our guests.

At least two guides on all of our multi-day kayaking & bicycling expeditions groups of 6 or more

One of our guides will make your trip with us great, but two will make it even better. We have at least two guides on all of our multi-day expeditions groups of 6 or more. This makes our trips safer, more intimate and allows our guides to offer our guests more, such as an evening paddle or hike, additional paddling skill development and more local folklore.

SMALL PERSONAL GROUPS

Groups of 4 or more can request a private trip at no additional charge. Groups of two or three guests can buy one extra ticket to go private.

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 guest 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 custom bicycle routes for more mileage to photography.

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED*

We begin each of our tours with a thorough safety/kayak lesson to familiarize you with your equipment so that you are adequately prepared for your adventure. This lesson includes paddling technique, sea kayaking safety, loading and unloading of your sea kayak, becoming familiar with our safety gear and other helpful and necessary preparation for our expedition. *Previous knowledge of bicycling is a must.

Camping at it's finest

We know that after a day of bicycling you are ready to take a warm shower. Because of this, we stay at handpicked campsites whether it's lakeside at Moran State Park on Orcas or Lakedale on San Juan Island. Our sites give you that "camping in the great outdoors" experience that you are looking for.

Trip Itinerary

Day 1 - Bicycle the San Juan Island Loop

Today we will cycle along quiet country roads with our first stop being at an organic Lavender Farm. Here you can explore the beautiful purple hillside and take photos. Don't forget to taste the variety of foods created with lavender before you head out. We cycle on to Lime Kiln State Park where you can hike along the rocky paths to a lighthouse or check out tide pools while your guide prepares lunch. Afterwards, we cycle north visiting the largest Alpaca Farm on San Juan Island. We then cycle on to Roche Harbor for an afternoon coffee or ice cream and to walk the docks of its beautiful marina. Roche Harbor is a quaint village with artist kiosks to check out, English gardens to explore, a sculpture park to walk through, and a very unique mausoleum for the adventurous. Next we will explore the scenic roads of White Point. This route will take you past Westcott Bay along a narrow country road to the shores of Westcott Bay Shellfish Co where you can sample island oysters and have a cold beverage. We will also stop at a Gin Distillery where you can enjoy a tasting. Next we will cycle on to our evening accommodations.

Day 2 - Kayak West Side of San Juan Island or Whale Watch Cruise

Choose your own adventure today!  We will either shuttle you to the beautiful western side of San Juan Island for a day of sea kayaking or you may choose to go on a whale watch wildlife cruise aboard the Odyssey. The day of kayaking includes a kayak safety lesson before you begin paddling along the evergreen cloaked coastline. As we journey down the coast, we'll keep a lookout for marine mammals surfacing above the water as we are in orca whale territory.

About halfway through the trip, we stop for lunch along a beach where you can search for creatures in the tide pools, look for sea glass among the pebbles or simply soak in the scenery. After lunch we will head back out on the water in search of orcas and eagles. If you choose the whale watch boat, you will spend the afternoon cruising the San Juan Islands aboard a comfortable classic motor yacht. You can sit back and relax in comfort while the personable on-board naturalists share their depth of knowledge of the local whales and wildlife. Afterwards, your guide will shuttle you back to your accommodations.
