Kayak San Juan Island - Day Tours

Roche Harbor, San Juan Island Kayaking Tour | 3-hours

$99 per person

On San Juan Island's North West side is Roche Harbor. Roche Harbor is a seaside village comprised of 2 restaurants, shops and a large modern marina. San Juan Outfitters is the exclusive kayak and whale watch operator from Roche Harbor. Being the exclusive operator on this side of San Juan Island allows San Juan Outfitters  access to areas where no other kayak company can go.


The location is ideal for kayaking and wildlife tours. The northwest side of San Juan Island has a combination of protected water, wildlife refuges, and access to big open with expansive views of Haro Strait, the Olympic Mountains, the Cascade Mountains, and the scenic  shorelines.


Haro Strait is known as an “Orca Highway”, and any encounter with one of our resident Killer Whale pods will happen here. Roche Harbor is just a short trip from Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. We see a good deal of wildlife on these day kayak tours. You will likely encounter seals, soaring bald eagles, some exceptional sea birds, tide pool creatures, even a bull kelp forrest and so much more.


Guests who choose a tour from Roche Harbor will get to visit our main operation for all San Juan Outfitters kayaking, paddle boarding, sit-on-top rental kayaks and peddle kayaks. It is called Marine Adventure Center or as the guides and locals say  “Meet you at the MAC".

No experience needed to join us on this kayak tour. Have Kids? We have Family Kayak Tours too!
