Outdoor Odysseys Kayak Tours


Outdoor Odysseys has been leading kayak tours for over 30 years in one of the most naturally stunning places to paddle in the world. Over 100,000 paddlers have shared in our tradition since we first took to the waters in 1987. We want to help you plan your next adventure and experience the very best of the San Juan Islands. From Orcas Island, simply take the inter island ferry to Friday Harbor, San Juan Island. We'll pick you up at the ferry terminal.

We recognize you have a variety of outfitters to choose from. Here’s why we hope you’ll consider Outdoor Odysseys for your adventure.

  • Experience: We have been leading sea kayaking tours since 1987 and have built a well-deserved reputation for offering high quality, meticulously crafted kayak tours.
  • Whales & Wildlife: Wildlife are just that, wild. Our tours launch from the West side of San Juan Island, a premier whale watching spot for our endangered orca whales. No company can guarantee whale sightings, but we strive to provide a fantastic kayak experience and consider orca whales to be the “icing” on an already amazing cake of adventure and natural beauty.
  • Food & Amenities: Our cuisine sets us apart in the field. We provide all the meals for our trips, including three course dinners and wine on our overnight excursions. Our guides are excellent cooks, adept at tailoring menus to our guests’ preferences and dietary restrictions.
  • Safety in Small Numbers: Outdoor Odysseys takes particular pride in our mature and professional guides. Our groups are small to insure customer attention on the water and a more personal experience.
  • Giving Back: Outdoor Odysseys donates a portion of all profits to organizations that we believe best protect and sustain the environment we paddle in.
