Our Story



San Juan Outfitters is owned and operated by Brian and Rachel Goodremont. Brian is a well respected Boat Captain, Naturalist, and Kayak guide in the San Juan Islands. Having managed another highly successful eco-tourism business on San Juan Island for 10 years, it was a natural fit when the opportunity to become the exclusive whale watch and kayak operator at Roche Harbor presented itself.

Having spent hundreds of days guiding, and later managing San Juan Safaris, Brian gained the invaluable experience necessary to be successful in this industry. While many aspects of his former company can be seen in the operation of San Juan Outfitters, there will be new energy injected into this endeavor.

Brian and Rachel both enjoy spending time outdoors kayaking, hiking, adventure running, or cross country skiing. Whether winter or summer, rain or shine, you’ll find them both either working or playing outside. The San Juan Islands and Pacific Northwest are the perfect location for an active lifestyle.

“My goal is to continue providing the high quality tours and adventures in the San Juan Islands and beyond. We will continue to focus on half day and full day trips, while offering a limited number of smaller multi-day and multi-sport tours. Kayaking and Whale Watching day tours will always be our specialty, but now we have an answer for our repeat customers and visitors looking for a high quality, small group multi-day or multi-sport experience”.

Our Mission Statement

San Juan Outfitters believes that getting people out in the natural environment is the first step in developing an appreciation for the natural world. We believe people have an innate drive to be outdoors, and we enjoy the opportunity make it happen. We hope that what comes out of that appreciation are steps taken to curb individual impact and decrease one’s footprint on the environment. Decreasing our individual foot-print, and preserving our natural world is our long term goal. We’re starting by setting an example here on San Juan Island.
