3-Day Trip from San Juan Island

Enjoy the tranquility-sea kayak tours.

May - September

Our most physically ambitious 3-Day kayak trip departs from the west side of San Juan Island. Participants can expect fairly long days of kayaking due to the distance from the launch site to the camp areas. This experience is best suited for adults and older teenagers in moderate physical condition who like the idea of putting some miles in while enjoying the scenery around them.

Keep your eyes open for Orca whales, seals, porpoise, and other wildlife found along the way. Highlights include a visit to the most popular Marine State Parks in the San Juan Islands, peaceful trails to walk, and gorgeous views into the Canadian Gulf Islands.

You will need to allow some additional time in your schedule to accommodate the ferry ride to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. A complimentary shuttle ride to the launch site will be provided. On the final day we try to return in time to catch the 6:30pm ferry from Friday Harbor, which arrives in Anacortes at approximately 7:30pm.

All Inclusive: $599 | $575 Kids 12 and Under
Self-Catered: $450 | $425 Kids 12 and Under
Prices are per person, based on double occupancy. **Single occupancy, private tent: $50 fee.

Orcas Island to Sucia Island Marine Park

Sucia Island Kayak Trip, Washington

May - September

Get away from it all and explore in the remote beauty of the Outer San Juan Islands! This kayak expedition departs from the north shore of Orcas Island and crosses directly to the Sucia Island Marine Park. Out on the edge of Washington State, Sucia island is home to a dense population of Harbor seals, many nesting Bald eagles, and a host of other wildlife. Orca whales are frequently encountered here as they hunt for seals and porpoise between the islands. Humpback whales can also be found foraging offshore, and a large herd of sea lions call Sucia Island home during part of the year.

This trip is best suited for people in moderate physical condition due to the mandatory crossing between Orcas Island and the Marine Park. A ferry ride to Orcas Island is required, so be sure to schedule an extra day so that you can take the time to see the largest island in the San Juans!

All Inclusive: $749 | $725 Kids 12 and Under
Self-Catered: $600 | $575 Kids 12 and Under
Prices are per person, based on double occupancy. **Single occupancy, private tent: $50 fee.

Is this for you?

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 6 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.

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.
