Washington’s San Juan Islands, Sea Kayaking

Nestled between the three great cities of Seattle, Vancouver, and Victoria, British Columbia are the San Juan Islands. Encompassed by the waterways of the Puget Sound, Strait of Juan de Fuca, and Rasario Strait these Islands are often referred to as the “Rain Shadow” of the Olympic Mountains offering an average of 247 days of sunshine annually. With over 200 rocky, forested islands to explore this has become a world renowned kayaking destination.

These pristine waters are host to over eighty-five resident orca whales. Other treasured wildlife sightings may include minke whales, harbor and Dall’s porpoises, seals, river otter, and a variety of birdlife varying from auklets to herons. This region also boasts the second largest bald eagle breeding population in the continental United States. Participants will traverse the waters using wind and currents to aid in the exploration of these beautiful islands as did the native Lummi and Swinomish tribes. The temperate climate, marine wildlife, and dynamic shoreline make the San Juan’s a paddler’s dream.
