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

Our San Juan Islands kayaking routes are carefully designed to maximize your probability for an amazing whale encounter! Our biologists know the best locations and these are shown on our website's maps. The friendly but highly-endangered salmon orcas have been very difficult to find in the past 2 years, but the elusive mammal-eating killer whales are increasing their local population. The islands are also home to seals, sea lions, porpoises, otters, eagles and more. Our 40+ years of living and working as biologists and educators in the San Juan Islands makes us the top kayaking experts!

Our 1-day trip to Lime Kiln Whale Watch Park and weekend 2-day kayak tour are quick escapes from the city! Discover the remote outer islands on our 3-day kayak camping trip. Or get away from it all on a 5-day kayak expedition! Our routes visit the San Juan Island National Historical Park, SJ Islands National Monument, and SJ Islands National Wildlife Refuge, and multiple state and local parks.

Sea Quest accommodates everyone from experts to beginners and can customize tours to fit your needs. Families with kids will love our family tours – age 5 & up – and 3-person kayaks so kids can sit between 2 adults in a very stable and fast sea kayak.

If you prefer to go without a guide and have kayak 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.
