Join your friendly and knowledgeable Next Adventure Instructors for the best sea kayaking the Northwest has to offer. During our San Juan Islands Kayak trip we will develop sea kayaking skills, learn about local tides and currents, cook delicious meals, and most importantly, have fun. The trip revolves around the Western San Juan Islands launching from either Roche Harbor or San Juan County Park, San Juan Island, highlighted by a the bio-diversity found in through the Cactus Islands and the Wasp Island Archipelago near Orcas Island. Our goal is for you to walk away with a taste of the San Juan's in all of glory.
Note: This trip is one of the best for whale sightings, as it spends the most time in the large marine mammal territory.
To help prepare you for this adventure, the Sunday before our departure, we will jump on the water to work on our paddling and rescues skills and build stability through fun and games. The Wednesday evening prior, we'll meet for snacks and logistics to answer last minute questions before departing Friday morning bright and early. All you need to do is show up the morning of our trip in SE Portland with your clothes! Come join us as we explore some of the finest waters to paddle world-wide.
