Have you heard about our unique and family friendly multi-day sea kayaking policy?

It’s simple: Book a group of five or more people and we can guarantee your own private kayaking trip, at no extra charge! All the same amenities will be provided, and we do not cut corners in any way due to the smaller group size. This option is great for people looking for an exclusive experience, or for families with younger kids.

Some companies will slap on a hefty surcharge if you want this kind of exclusive experience, but we understand that some folks would just like to focus on their own people rather than worrying about the needs of a mixed group. We don’t feel right about making it more expensive to spend time alone with friends and family, and we are happy to be able to accommodate your wishes.

If you have young children, but do not have five people in your group, then give us a call. We will do everything we can to make sure that your needs are met. We have youngsters of our own and we know how difficult it can be to plan a trip that is appropriate for their needs.

We specialize in small group, all inclusive, multi-day sea kayak trips in the San Juans.

  • On these multi-day sea kayaking expeditions we strictly adhere to a 6 guest per guide ratio. All trips larger than 6 people will have two guides.
  • Groups of 5 or more guests can choose to have a private kayaking experience!
    (multi-day trips only)
  • A small sea kayaking group can move much more efficiently. We need less time attending to logistical issues like setting up or breaking camp and have more time for exploring and having fun in the San Juan Islands.
  • All camping and kayaking equipment is provided, as are all meals, including lunches.

The longer multi-day sea kayaking expeditions are best suited for folks in reasonably good shape. Occasionally there is a need to make a long push to get to the next campsite and we would not want to wear anyone out on a long crossing. We actually design these trips to be a little more physically involved. 5 day trips might average 8-10 miles per day paddling.

Anacortes Kayak Tours reserves the right to change or cancel available departure dates and prices. Once you book a kayak tour with us we will run it, as long as weather conditions permit us to conduct a safe sea kayaking excursion.

On multiday kayaking trips we do have a minimum of two people to run the trip, this is a matter of safety, not economics.

Don’t hesitate to call us if you have questions or would like additional details on any of our trips.

Megan — thank you in particular for the fine shopping and meal planning. The boys and I were joking that we ate better during the trip than we did at home the past 2 months (due to baseball and the need for lots of hasty meals.) We certainly didn’t lose weight.

Thanks too to Tiffan and Pete, our guides. They really made the trip special. I can’t say enough about their expert planning, and the fun we had with their local knowledge. I’m not normally a “guided tour” kind of guy, but this trip was the better for everything they brought to the table.

Pete, Matt, and Andrew Noone
