Kayak and Fly - Seattle to San Juan Island Package

This tour is an exceptional excursion - just a day-trip away from Seattle. Fly up to San Juan island in the morning and back to Seattle in the late afternoon.

Available mid-April through September, the package include a scenic 45-minute seaplane flight between Seattle’s Lake Union and Roche Harbor’s or Friday Harbor’s Marina on San Juan Island. You will be flying on Kenmore Air. Kenmore Air, established in 1946, has been flying customers to the San Juan Islands for more the 20 years.

So, you never kayaked before? No problem! San Juan Outfitters loves to introduce people to the thrill of sea kayaking in the calm waters off San Juan Island.  There are tours for every skill level. And we offer kayaking tours for families with kids.

What you will see

Experience a seal’s eye view of the marine mammals, unusual sea birds like cormorants, oystercatchers, auklets, and soft eyed harbor seals. Everywhere you look is snowcapped mountains and magnificent vistas.  And if the tide is right - tide pool critters. San Juan Outfitters has the reputation for high quality tours and respectful wildlife viewing. Never more than 10 guests per naturalist kayak guide on the tour.

What to expect

Before departing our kayak docks, your guide will provide you with a brief safety and paddle orientation.  You will also be assisted with your gear. While you are paddling, your naturalist guide will point out different animals, comment on the islands geography and history; explain the tides and water conditions. This tour is fun and educational too.
