We felt completely safe, the food was nothing short of spectacular (and always right on time!), and they were simultaneously in complete control and entirely respectful of our group. Ours is a company based upon outstanding customer service and it’s perhaps an understatement to say that we demand the same from the agencies and individuals we choose to work with. Anacortes Kayak Tours has certainly lived up to our vision of what customer service can and should be — Bravo!Kaj Bune, Exped

Make Us Your Partner
We have years of experience running successful kayaking trips organized to a groups needs and requirements. We also live here year round and have deep ties to the community so we can assist you in planning every aspect of your trip.
We think that we do a darned good job, but we also feel that “the best” is a fairly subjective value, so here’s a few reasons why we feel that you would enjoy kayaking with us–
Location, Location, Location!
AKT has trips that depart from both sides of the San Juan Island ferry route. There are a variety of choices that depart from Anacortes / Fidalgo Island, and also from Friday Harbor / San Juan Island. This means that you are sure to find a trip that best suits your needs and interests!
Anacortes (Home Port to the San Juan Islands) is an easy 90 minute drive from Seattle. Located on beautiful Fidalgo Island, and connected to the mainland by bridges, you can drive directly to us. The west side of Fidalgo Island offers outstanding views of the Olympic Mountains and the rest of the San Juan Islands. A cluster of small islands, located just offshore of our marina, have incredible wildlife viewing opportunities, including seals, porpoise, and Orca whales. These routes are exceptionally scenic, and we often have the shorelines all to ourselves!
Friday Harbor, on San Juan Island, is one of the top tourist destinations in Washington State. All of our kayak tours depart from the San Juan County Park or from Roche Harbor on the scenic north shore of San Juan Island. On these trips you will be paddling into the federally proposed “Orca Whale Sanctuary” on the west side of the archipelago. (Note: although historically there used to be more whale sightings here, the patterns have changed and we now see them with equal frequency from all of our locations.)
Nobody can beat our commitment to customer service. If you have a question, or a concern, then we are readily available to help you out. Over the years we have been a source of amusement for our visiting friends as we balance preparing dinner for our young children while answering dozens of phone calls after business hours. We understand that being present for our customers is the top priority and so you will rarely find times when we cannot be reached. What this means is that on the water and off the water you and your guides will have the support that you need. If something is not right then we will do backflips to try and fix it. That is our promise to you.
No Disappointments Necessary! —
A worry free experience.
Plans change, things happen, and sometimes they just seem to go wrong.
During the busy summer months there are days when the San Juan Island ferries run into problems. Sailings can be delayed without notice, sometimes for hours. With another kayak company if you miss your scheduled kayak trip due to these delays then you often have no other options available. With AKT you won’t miss a thing. We will happily transfer your booking to one of the many trips that we offer from Anacortes. Our 3-Hour and 5-Hour kayak trips depart just two minutes away from the Washington State Ferry Terminal, and our Deception Pass tours are just a short drive down the road. Your vacation time is important, let us do the worrying. Our priority is to get you on the water and having fun!

Locally Owned and Operated
AKT founders Megan and Erik Schorr were born and raised here in western Washington. They have been on the waters of the Puget Sound their whole lives, and have guided and kayaked along every nook and cranny in the San Juans for over 20 years. Living here in Anacortes provides them with the opportunity to raise their two sons with the same experiences that they have had. For them Anacortes Kayak Tours is more than just a business, it’s the natural continuance of a way of life. Nothing pleases them more than to be able to share the experience with others.
