We did the Whale Kayaking. First, though I realize this is not their fault, we saw not a glimmer of a whale. But it was a very beautiful place on a beautiful day in which we would have enjoyed just kayaking - but. I kayak...More
Highly recommend SeaQuest! They are environmentally aware, know the value of wildlife and therefore respect the wildlife, and they are very knowledgeable about the area which we explored. Our tour guide was Conner, and from start to finish we were treated to facts. Anything from...More

I cannot recommend this trip/company highly enough! Our guide, Conner, was fabulous. He was knowledgeable, energetic and patient while teaching the novice kayakers how to paddle, steer and control the kayak. I am particularly sensitive to being respectful of the wildlife and their habitat while...More

If you’re flying into SeaTac there are shuttles that can take you to the Anacortes Ferry terminal. You can look up the Bellair Airporter shuttle. It’s about a 2 hour ride. You can get tickets ahead of time and there are times listed for each departure. The Anacortes ferry will take you to Friday Harbor (~1hr10min ferry ride). The meeting place for the sea quest Kayak tour is usually right near the Friday harbor ferry terminal where the little traffic circle is. It’s a lot of traveling to get there so I hope you’re staying a few days!

We took the 3 day Sea Quest tour. We camped on Posey Island both nights. The guides were amazing and we had an incredible adventure. The night before and after the trip we stayed at Wayfarer's Rest, a hostel. It was really nice and convenient.
