Sea Kayak Expedition: 5 Day

For five days, you will be immersed in sea kayaking in the San Juan Islands. We will use the pull of the moon to go from one island to another faster and with less effort. Our multi-day sea kayak adventures are the best way to experience the San Juan Islands. We will eat seaweed, see awesome wildlife, and roast marshmallows by the campfire. We’ll work on paddling skills, go on hikes, and appreciate all the beauty this area has to offer.

While there is lots to learn on these trips, the emphasis is on the adventure. We will set up outdoor classrooms and give opportunities to work on specific skills, If you have specific goals you’re working on please let us know and we will add them in where appropriate.

Meals are provided on these trips. One week before the trip, we will provide a menu that accommodates dietary restrictions, and you are welcome to supplement meals as you see fit.

All Body Boat Blade Expeditions are done in single kayaks. If you’ve never kayaked before or have limited experience, consider taking a basic course first! Not interested in a course? Check out Anacortes Kayak Tours for beginner-friendly multi-day trips in the San Juan Islands.

Our 5-day expeditions have a few different options:

Option 1: Fidalgo Island Out & Back
Leaving from Anacortes we paddle to our first camp. There are multiple routes to choose from Including Saddlebag, Cypress, James, Lopez, Orcas, Doe, or Clark. We will decide as a group which route we take based on the weather and goals of the group. The best part about this trip is it requires no ferry and no hassles. Park at our shop and return back to your car with sun bronzed skin, a belly full of good food, and the experience of a lifetime.

Option 2: San Juan Island 1-way back to Anacortes
This trip will leave from Friday Harbor. We’ll wheel our kayaks and gear onto the ferry and take a ride out into the islands. We’ll get packed and launch from the docks in Friday Harbor, and head to our first camp on Jones Island. From there, the world is our oyster. Winding and weaving our way back to Anacortes through the interior, or taking the long way round to explore the north end of the islands. This trip is a true all-around adventure.
