Kayak Washington State & Killer Whales

For more than 20 years, our small group of devoted professional kayak guides has focused on providing educational sea kayaking trips in Washington from one location - the killer whale waters of the San Juan Islands. Our Washington kayak tours are deliberately planned to generate unforgettable encounters with marine animals, particularly the astounding pods of resident killer whales.

The San Juan Islands of Washington state are the best location in the United States for watching orca whales. Within Washington, over 95% of killer whale sightings are made in a very small zone that fringes the extreme west boundary of the San Juans. Due to special protections, we call this the Killer Whale Sanctuary. Its the one place they visit on nearly every summer day to catch salmon and play. If you visit our map page you can see our kayaking routes stick to the orca whale waters to maximize your chances of seeing orcas. Sea Quest kayak tours have the best record of successful killer whale watching!

Our Washington kayak tours begin in the charming village of Friday Harbor, a popular vacation destination accessed by a scenic ferry ride, a short distance from Seattle. Other attractions include the San Juan Islands National Historical Park and the largest state park in Washington.
