Sea Quest Kayak Tours

Join a "Kayak Quest for Whalestoday! Our specialty is finding orca whales while kayaking. Sea Quest was selected by National Geographic in their “10 Best Trips in the World for 2011” and USA Today picked us for their “World's Top 10 Adventure Bargains.” Visit our website now to watch fantastic videos made for National Geographic TV and ABC News.

Our kayaking routes are carefully designed to maximize your probability for an amazing whale encounter! Orcas are creatures of habit and nearly all sightings occur in just one narrow corridor – check out our website’s maps to see “Orca Alley.” You will likely also see seals, sea lions, porpoises, otters, eagles and more. Our 34 years of living and working as biologists and educators in the San Juans makes us the top kayaking experts!

Day trips explore Lime Kiln Point State Park a.k.a. Whale Watch Park. Discover the remote outer islands on 2, 3 & 5-day camping trips. Our routes visit the San Juan Island National Historical Park, National Monument, and National Wildlife Refuge, along with multiple state and county parks.

Sea Quest accommodates everyone from experts to beginners and can customize tours to fit your needs. Families with kids will appreciate our family tours – age 5 & up – and 3-person kayaks so kids can sit between two adults. Children under 12 may be eligible for a 20% discount.

If you prefer to go without a guide and have substantial training and experience, we have kayak rentals. We also offer wildlife & birding tours on land or sea, led by our local expert birder & bird book author.
