With over 200 rocky, forested islands to explore, the San Juan Archipelago is a superb kayak destination. With sublime views of Mt. Baker and the Olympic Mountains, you will have a chance to kayak among the many small, uninhabited islands that “ring” San Juan Island. You’ll experience the fun of paddling and camping on remote islands accessible only by boat!
Harking back to an earlier time, the islands were used by the native Lummi and Swinomish tribes as summer fishing camps. The pristine waters of the San Juan and Gulf Islands are host to over 80 resident orca whales. Other treasured wildlife sightings may include minke whales, harbor and Dall's porpoises, harbor seals, river otters and a variety of different birdlife ranging from auklets to herons. The region also boasts one of the largest bald eagle breeding populations in the Continental U.S.
The San Juan Islands are home to an eclectic mix of artists, industry, and tourism. The beautiful environment, temperate weather and fascinating variety of marine mammals and bird species all add to the allure of the islands. Stepping off the ferry in Friday Harbor, you instantly feel the age of this ancient rock; it really is a different world. Islanders have a deep appreciation for the environment. This connection to the land and water echoes of times past, but not forgotten.
