Fly to San Juan Island for the adventure of a lifetime! Our exclusive location at Roche Harbor and custom finger slip docks mean more secluded paddles and no wet feet!

Fly to Roche Harbor via Kenmore Air
San Juan Island's best kayak tour

An incredible day trip from Seattle to sea kayak in the San Juans!  

Join Kenmore Air on a 45-minute scenic seaplane flight from downtown Seattle to Roche Harbor to paddle the diverse waters surrounding San Juan Island. Experience the thrill of flying in a small craft while you take in breathtaking views of Washington's mountains and the islands from above.

Our 5 Hour Orca Search by Kayak is best for paddlers looking for a little more time on the water, an extra challenge, and the best opportunity to spot the most wildlife in the San Juans.  Added time on the water and more ground covered means your chances of viewing wildlife, especially orcas, is greatly increased.  

Paddling primarily in Haro Strait, this itinerary gives you the best chances of encountering an orca by kayak.  Viewing an orca by kayak is a once in a lifetime experience and San Juan Outfitters gives you the highest percentage of success. Our kayak guides communicate with our whale watch captains in real time and know of any possible sightings within our sea kayak tour's range.  While orca encounters do happen, it is important to remember orcas can travel up to 100 miles per day and over 30mph, and you will be paddling in a small section of their habitat. If encountering orcas is on your bucket list, consider joining our Adventure Whale Watch and Wildlife tour by vessel to maximize your chances.

- Roundtrip air with Kenmore Air to Roche Harbor from Lake Washington in Seattle

- 5 Hour Orca Search by Kayak 

- All kayak and safety equipment

Bag lunch, water, snacks, sunscreen, and camera. Hat, sunglasses, and light clothing that will dry quickly avoiding heavy cottons. Comfortable sports sandals with a heel strap (Chacos, Tevas, etc) are ideal.
