Beginner and advanced paddlers launch from Orcas Island, heading toward Point Doughty State Park to spot seals, eagles, and porpoises before sunbathing on a beach with views of Mount Baker. On full-day trips, Outer Island’s boats shuttle patrons to Sucia Island’s pristine shores, where a brief kayaking lesson equips adventurers with the skills to navigate large bays in search bald eagles, ospreys, and the occasional orca whale. Tours run daily with groups of 4–12.<p>

Outer Island Expeditions

Outer Island Expeditions' fleet of kayaks and boats safely cruises at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour through frothy crests ebbing amid the striking sights and wildlife of the San Juan islands. Venturing as far as 50 miles into Canadian waters, whale-watching excursions foster personal rapport between patrons and boat-side orcas, gray whales, or humpback whales trying to learn human etiquette for future espionage missions. Tours of Stuart Island's Turn Point lighthouse begin aboard a 22-foot Kodiak skiff, which buoys patrons through 16 miles of waters inhabited by sea lions and porpoises before they disembark and hike to the lighthouse's historical museum. Fishing charters set sail in search of ocean creatures and potable salt water from all of Outer Island Expeditions' four launch points: Smuggler's Villa Resort, Semiahmoo Resort, Lopez Island, and The Willows on Lummi Island.

Topnotch org but still a good size for personable 1on1 attention and caring. This was our second outing with them and they always shine - both whale watching and kayak excursion - we love Outer Island Expeditions!!
