Newest itinerary - Sucia 5 Day Overnight Kayak Tour

Paddle to one of the most unique islands in the San Juan Archipelago! Sucia Island lies just north of Orcas Island and is a prehistoric river bed turned on its side; the sandstone is filled with fossils! A favorite of everyone who visits, Sucia Island State Park is the perfect destination and only accessible by private vessel or kayak.

The route to Sucia will depend greatly on group ability and weather. The trip is likely to begin in Friday Harbor and then paddle to Jones Island for one night of camping, before continuing on the following day to Sucia. Spend one night on Sucia before making your way back to Roche Harbor with a stop on Jones or Pt. Doughty on Orcas along the way. The Sucia 5 day requires unpacking/packing each day and maximizes your paddling time.

Sucia 5 day is recommended for experienced paddlers or novice paddlers in good physical condition.

Self-Suppported Multi-day Sea Kayak Tours

Also called a "self-guided" tour, this tour is an ideal experience for scout groups, school camps, or experienced outdoorists who have the needed camping equipment to operate a multi-day tour, but lack the sport specific sea kayak equipment and professional knowledge of the waterways surrounding the San Juan Islands. That's where we come in!

What San Juan Outfitters Provides: We provide a professional San Juan Outfitters sea kayak guide, plus all sport specific sea kayak equipment which includes expedition double and expedition triple Northwest Sea Kayak brand sea kayaks, PFD (personal flotation device), spray skirt, and paddle, plus commercial permit. Our San Juan Outfitters guide is the chief safety officer on the water during the multi-day tour. 

What You Provide: You provide all other required camping equipment to operate your multi-day tour. This includes tents, sleeping bags, camp kitchen equipment, cookware, all meals, personal clothing and toiletries, and campsite fees. 

Pricing is $150/person/day, plus fees & WA State sales tax. A minimum of 4 guests for a 3-day tour is required to operate a self-supported sea kayak camping tour. Choose from the Classic Itinerary or Island Hopper Itinerary. Family self-supported tours are also welcome! Want more time on the water? Consider scheduling a 4 to 6 day self-supported tour in the San Juan Islands!

4 to 6 Day Sea Kayak Tours

Did you know that the San Juan Island archipelago is made up of over 400 islands!? The Washington State Ferry System only services four of these islands, which leaves many of the islands accessible only by private vessel or sea kayak. 

Mutli-day tours longer than 3-days give guests the chance to explore those outer San Juan Islands that are rarely seen by other travelers. Sucia Island Marine State ParkPoint Doughty on Orcas Island, along with Matia and Patos Islands, are commonly explored during our 4 to 6 day multi-day tours.

Sea kayak camping tours of 4 to 6 days in length are recommended for guests who have had substantial rustic camping or multi-day backpacking expereince. Similar to an extended backpacking trip, guests should be prepared for rustic camping with no flush toilets, showers, or indoor shelter. Potable water is available at most camp site locations. Multi-day 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. 

4 to 6 day San Juan Island multiday kayak camping tours can be operated both as an all-inclusive tour or as a self-supported excursion.
