Description:
Sea kayaking on the west side of San Juan Island affords participants the best chance in the lower 48 to observe Orca whales in their natural habitat. The pristine waters of the San Juan and Gulf Islands are host to over 80 resident Orca Whales.

During your kayak tour, you'll kayak for about an hour and a half and then stop for a break at a beautiful little cove just south of Lime Kiln State Park that has outstanding views of the Olympic Mountains and Vancouver Island. You'll then continue paddling and exploring along the rocky shores of San Juan Island.

This trip will provide you with unparalleled opportunities to observe, study and learn more about the fascinating marine mammals and birds that range along this wonderful area.

"The experience was wonderful and very well described on your website except for the so called gourmet lunch. Lunch was peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or hummus and cheese with lettuce,tomato,cucumber,red onion,and green peppers. No drinks, plates,or napkins were provided. Not very appetizing after working up such an appetite. Overall a great time and our guide was wonderful."
