BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This kayaking outfitter stands apart in many ways. First, it's owned and operated by a small non-profit organization dedicated to environmental education, promotion of scientific research, and support for conservation groups.
  • All of the expeditions are led by biologists or other environmental scientists who double as well-trained kayak guides and outdoor educators. If you really want to learn about the whales and eco-system through which you're kayaking, this is the operator to go with.
  • The three-hour (half-day) to six-hour (full-day) tours meet at the Friday Harbor ferry terminal.

After traversing heavily trafficked boat lanes for most of the first day we ended up at what the guide described as "the campground of last resort" which was on the front lawn of an oyster farm about 5 miles from downtown Friday Harbor. We could have walked there. There was a huge wedding next door with DJ, disco lights, and loud music until 11pm. The next morning we had to carry our fully loaded kayaks out through ~ 75 feet of calf deep mud. People were losing their shoes and falling down in the oyster muck. It was only through sheer luck that someone didn't badly cut themselves on the broken oyster shells embeded in the mud. No apology, no remorse, no offer of a makeup trip, no offer of a refund of any sort. Dozens of kayaking company's in the islands, use a different one and save yourself a bad experience...
