Family Multi-Day Kayaking & Bicycling Camping Expeditions

Cassidy made our trip perfect! He was so helpful and knowledgable, and anticipated our every need. The trip was well planned but flexible enough to adapt to our wishes and preferences. We had a great time and will definitely recommend to others!

Wow! Iris is an excellent gourmet chef. All meals were yummy. Iris was the glue that made our trip so special. She was attentive, fun, helpful, encouraging, and a delight to be with 24/7. Also, she is a gourmet chef with healthy, visually lovely, meals. She tuned in to our individual needs while making our small-group experience so special.

Family Kayak & Bike Camping Summary

Hey Families! Here's the ultimate camping multi-sport combination. It's a vacation that includes not only sea kayaking, but includes bicycling the islands as well. Sea kayak one day among small remote islands in search of sea birds, seals, porpoise, river otters and orcas…then cycle the next day along unpopulated roads past rolling pastures, dotted with sheep and along steep, breathtaking cliffs. Each night we will impress you with our culinary talents while you relax and enjoy camping at its finest!

Length: These tours range from 2-6 days in length.

Few people get to experience each island's unique style the way that you will. This trip takes you kayaking along the evergreen coastline of San Juan Island's west side and cycling along forested and pastoral roads leading views of the sea and snowcapped Olympic Peninsula. Orcas Island boasts Moran State Park with a panoramic view on top of Mount Constitution, lakes to hike around and waterfalls to cool off in. Lopez Island (known for its friendliness) is the smallest of the major San Juan Islands and offers a great route that winds along pastures of sheep down to scenic beaches. You will get to know each of these islands inside and out while cycling and kayaking.

Please note that the vast majority of our trips follow the routes and itineraries listed on our website, but changes may occur for reasons of safety, weather, logistics and guide or administrative judgement.

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.

No previous sea kayaking experience is 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.

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 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. For all these reasons and more we keep our regularly scheduled multi-day expedition group size to 10 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.

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. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Will I fit in the kayak and gear?

    Here’s a good way to get an idea if you will fit in the kayak. Most people of average body weight and height can fit into the kayak. All of our kayaks are doubles so there is more space that one might think.

    NOT SURE? PLEASE DO THIS: Take a measuring tape and measure the circumference of the widest part of your body (hips/stomach/chest).

    Our SPRAY SKIRTS fits up to 43 inches including clothing, around the largest part of the midriff. The spray skirt is what you will wear around your torso. It connects to the kayak cockpit to keep you dry. You can wear it above or below your chest. There is a string to synch it to your body. If you can comfortably fit into it, you should be good to wear the spray skirt.

    Our COCKPIT dimensions are 31" Long x 16" Wide x 14.5" Deep.

    The cockpit is the opening area to get into the kayak. You will need to be able to sit down past it to get onto the kayak seat. Remember that your body parts can move and the boat is fiberglass so if you have hips that are around these dimensions, you can typically still sit into the kayak. What we want is for you to be able to safely exit the kayak. *Please send us a message through our website or give us a call, if you question whether you or someone in your group might not fit.

  • Am I too tall?

    The kayaks are most comfortable for people who are 6’ 4? ft. and under. If you are above this height, you may not feel comfortable. We can put tall people in the front of the kayak to give them more leg room. *Please send us a message through our website or give us a call, if you question whether you or someone in your group might be too tall.

  • 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 our departure point. 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.

  • Are showers available on the camping kayaking & bicycling tours?

    Yes! We do have access to showers at our campsites.

  • 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.

Day 2 & 3 in Prime Orca Whale Territory

Day 1 Cycle San Juan Island
We will meet you at our shop in Friday Harbor located at 40 Spring street, just steps from the ferry terminal and shuttle the group to our starting point, just outside of downtown. After we gear up and have a safety lesson, we head out along San Juan Valley Road. We will cycle along quiet country roads, stopping at Whale Watch Park for lunch and wildlife viewing at Lime Kiln State Park. Afterwards, we cycle north visiting an Alpaca Farm and an English garden at British Camp. Stop at Roche Harbor for an afternoon coffee or ice cream and 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. Before heading back toward town, explore the scenic roads of White Point. This route will take you past Westcott Bay Cider and Spy Hop Distillery where you can try a taste of their local juniper gin or local apple ciders. We then cycle along a narrow country road to the shores of Westcott Bay Shellfish Co where you can sample oysters at the local oyster farm.

Day 2 Kayak Henry Island
Today we enjoy a delicious breakfast and then head to the west-side of San Juan Island. Here we kayak north to start our circumnavigation of Henry Island. We follow the outer coastline which is orca whale territory. Along the way we will see a huge Bald Eagles nest, Harbor Seals lounging on the rocks and cormorants nesting in the cliffs. This afternoon we will take a break for lunch on Posey Island or one of the other remote beaches. We paddle back through Mosquito Pass; a sheltered waterway for kayakers, and then on into Mitchell Bay.

Day 3 Kayak the western side of San Juan Island or Whale Watch Cruise
This morning’s breakfast will give you the energy you need for your day on the water. 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 in search of wildlife. This trip lasts 3-4 hours.

Day 4 Bicycle Orcas Island
After breakfast, we hop onto the ferry to Orcas Island. The ferry ride lasts about 40 minutes and offers beautiful views of San Juan Channel and the Wasp Islands. Once on Orcas Island we will cycle along the wildflower lined country roads headed towards West Harbor. The road eventually leads inland taking us along the edge of Crow Valley which sits at the base of Turtleback Mountain. Along the way we’ll check out Orcas Island Pottery where you can find beautiful and unique pottery handcrafted by local artists. Once in Eastsound (a small village), your guides will prepare a fresh and delicious lunch. There will be a little extra time afterwards to explore the shops and sites of Eastsound. From here we cycle along to Moran State Park. As Washington's first state park, this area offers a variety of activities. Swim in crisp mountain lakes, cycle the 5.5 mile climb to the summit of Mount Constitution, walk to beautiful Cascade Falls or call it a day and climb in the van for a ride to the top. At 2,407 feet the summit of Mount Constitution is the highest point in the San Juan Islands and offers spectacular views of Mount Baker to the east and the San Juan Archipelago in all directions.

Day 5 Kayak the Wasp Islands
After a delicious breakfast we will shuttle everyone to Deer Harbor on Orcas Island. This route is simply breathtaking. It winds along a group of very small islands called the Wasp Islands. As we paddle along the shoreline, you might see bald eagles perched in old Douglas fir trees or witness a great blue heron wading in a shallow bay searching for its lunch. This is harbor porpoise territory so stay on the lookout for marine mammals! Your guides will make you an amazing picnic lunch along the way.

Day 6 Bicycle Lopez Island
Today's activities will be cycling the neighboring island of Lopez. The ferry takes about 40 minutes to travel around Shaw Island. Keep an eye out for whales, seals, eagles and even swimming deer! We start the route at the ferry landing and quickly are enjoying views of the majestic Olympic Mountains. Our first stop will be in the small village of Lopez. This is a good place to grab a morning coffee or a freshly baked pastry from the amazing Holly B's Bakery. This morning we will cycle along the shore of Fisherman Bay and head out to Otis Perkins County Park to enjoy the scenery. We continue the quiet country roads toward Shark Reef County Park for a scenic walk and picnic lunch. While your guides prepares lunch, take a walk down to the water. The trail brings you through a beautiful forest and pops you out on the rocky southwest shore looking over turbulent Cattle Pass toward San Juan Island and the Olympic Mountains.
