Friday Harbor 3-Day Coastal Explorer Kayak Trip Details
We’ll keep a constant watch for orca, humpback and minke whales, as we spend a day and a half in prime whale country. Rugged coastline, an abundance of wildlife and a last-night island jewel campground reserved exclusively for San Juan Kayak Expeditions highlight this trip.
Though the route appears similar to our two-day Orca Quest, it is much different. This unique route traverses varied wildlife habitat, enjoys the spectacular cliffs of Speiden Island’s north side, puts us in prime orca whale habitat longer and stays off the beaten path. It also puts us in two spectacular island campsites and allows us time to hone our kayak skills, explore our surroundings and get to know our fellow paddlers.
Our specialty, honed by experience, is using the tide and eddies to our advantage and predicting the travel patterns of orca whales. If the wind is right, we’ll hoist our spinnakers to experience the excitement of sea kayak sailing! Each evening after dinner, you may enjoy a sunset hike or paddle, and, when conditions are right, a bioluminescent paddle! This active adventure also allows down-time in our comfy, nylon hammocks, leisure to explore intertidal pools and reminisce about our days on the water around a warm campfire!
Breaking camp each morning with the anticipation of the adventure, scenery and wildlife ahead make this trip a true expedition! You won’t want to miss it!
