Sea Quest Expeditions was well organized company and even let me book 3 days before the trip went out. Charlie are guide, was fantastic, he had extensive local knowledge about the regions and it’s inhabitants together with his personality added considerably to the welcoming vibe to the five day tour. As an solo traveler, I always felt completely safe both on the water and in the beautiful campsite locations.

The San Juan Islands has stunningly rugged landscapes and there is no better way to explore them than on kayaks. One of the highlights for me has to be the sunset kayaking with the magical bioluminescence.

Would definitely recommend both visiting the San Juan and taking a trip with Sea Quest.

We selected the two day trip from San Juan and kayaked north. Our guide, Trè, was great with our group in that he was patient, informative, and fun to spend two days with. The Kayaks were in great condition and if you follow the packing guide you'll be set. Sun screen, pants and long sleeve shirts(because of Mosquitos) water, and trail mix are essentials.

The food provided is a vegetarian menu so bring your protein. The tents were small but big enough for two adults. We did NOT see any Orcas on our trip, first two days of August, but that's nature for you; can't predict where they will be. We saw everything else on the trip like dolphins, eagles, star fishes, etc.

The reason we booked the trip was to see the Orcas, but seeing the beautiful landscape that part of the country has was well worth the trek. (Price wise I feel it is a bit high)

I will make another trip and I will use Sea Quest again.

My wife and I enjoyed a half-day trip recently with Sea Quest. We flew into Friday Harbor in a Sea Plane from Kenmore Air out of Lake Union in Seattle.(Great experience) Although it was a an overcast day the scenery was beautiful as expected. We saw starfish (oops..."Sea Stars"), bald eagles, seals and more wildlife. Our guide's (Alex and Collin) knowledge of the area and their funny personal stories made our adventure even more enjoyable!

A great experience with a very knowledgeable staff! Collin was our guide, and his knowledge, as well as concern for safety, made for a very enjoyable experience!

We recently returned from a 5-day trip, and believe that our guide, Charlie, made the trip what it was. He has a broad-base of knowledge about the sea life in the area, knows his way around the islands, kept track of the currents and tides, is a very good people person, was well organized, and a good cook to boot. We saw incredible natural beauty, had an outstanding group to kayak with, and had many interesting conversations. We would highly recommend this trip. Mike and Nancy S.
