Kayaking

Enrich your Spring Bay experience with a guided kayak tour through the clear and cleansing waters of the Salish Sea. Watch for bald eagles, harbor seals, river otter, sea birds, and an amazing variety of tidal sea life as you ply the waters of the San Juan Islands archipelago.

We use double kayaks and provide all the necessary comfort and safety gear. Your guide is an expert naturalist and experienced kayaker. All our tours are two hours. We launch directly from our private bay, so there is no need for additional transportation across the island.

Morning Tour: 2 hours, $45/person. Paddle through the sea as the wildlife of Orcas wakes up and begins to stir.

Afternoon Tour: 2 hours, $45/person. Easy paddling, with time for photo ops, ooh’s and aah’s.

Group Rates: Bring your own group or family of 4 or more for a 2-hour tour at $40/person.
