About Our Tours
Two Exclusive Departure Locations: Our two exclusive depart locations on San Juan Island gives guests access to islands and waterways seldom traveled by other sea kayakers. Our Island Hopper itinerary is a point-to-point tour, meaning you never retrace your steps and explore new areas every day. This also means launching from dry finger docks at the beginning of your adventure. No wet feet to start your tour!
We're Flexible and Creative: Don't see an itinerary that captures your interest? Our Custom Itineraries are a guest favorite for those looking for an extra exciting adventure, or large groups such as scout or camp organizations. Dietary restrictions? No problem! We can accommodate most dietary restrictions including gluten- or lactose-free, vegetarian, and Kosher.
Family Specific Itineraries: When company owner and operator Brian Goodremont developed San Juan Outfitters' multiday tour itineraries, he made it a goal to have a tour option available to families with children ages 6 to 12 years of age. Our Family Multiday Tours are designed with the whole family in mind including family meals, games, and time on the water. Our guides are great at working with kids and making sure that the trip is fun and exciting for both the kids and adults.
Family specific kayak tours emphasize a hands-on wildlife experience. Your child can hold their first jellyfish, or sea star, or sample bull kelp. Kayak with guides who are fun and enjoy spending time with kiddos. All guides have degrees or backgrounds in biology, ecology, or outdoor recreation, and many are K-12 educators during the school year.
What our customers are saying:
We had a two day trip with our guides Amy and Kali. They were awesome! The trip was awesome! Following dinner our guides served a cake that they baked personally for two of the boys who were celebrating a birthday that weekend.
All guests paddle in double or triple kayaks with gear packed into the kayak, with all gear for your adventure packed into the sea kayak upon departure. We use triple kayaks as doubles on overnights and pack larger gear items into the middle seat. We use expedition style Northwest Kayaks that are very stable and easy to steer using a foot peg rudder system. Multiday kayak tours can expect to paddle 12-15+ miles per day. Please note that fully loaded sea kayaks can be heavy, and feeling fatigued and/or sore after a day of sea kayaking is very normal.
What our customers are saying:
Seriously a fantastic day! These guys were super dialed - great communication, gear was clean and prepped, transportation was seamless, and top-notch guides!
