Enjoy three days of kayaking and camping as you explore the many islands of Washington State's San Juan archipelago all while in the supportive and empowering company of other adventurous women. This trip is perfect for beginner and experienced kayakers, covering moderate distances each day and leaving plenty of flex time to pursue your interests on and off the water. To top it off, you'll enjoy an all-inclusive camping experience featuring delicious camp cuisine and bottled wines.
Featuring incredible views and great wildlife, this trip is a Northwest classic. Paddle your kayak through the favored habitat of the Southern Resident Orca Whales, currently protected under the Endangered Species Act. The San Juan Islands and surrounding Salish Sea are also home to a host of other marine mammals and sea birds. Keep an eye out for bald eagles, osprey, California Sea Lions, and Harbor Seals, as well as porpoises and the occasional Minke Whale. On land, you might catch glimpses of deer, wild turkey, and river otters.
Throughout your adventure, you'll be guided by the experienced and trained women of Outdoor Odysseys who are here to share with you some of the best ocean kayaking and wildlife viewing in the Pacific Northwest. Stay at scenic waterfront campsites, which are fully equipped with fire pits, picnic tables, running water, and outhouses for a comfortable experience. Here, your guides will prepare exquisite cuisine made with locally sourced, organic foods, including plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, paired with great wine and chocolates. You're expected to work together as a group as you assist in setting up camp and take care of the kayaks, helping to form bonds with other like-minded women as you share the sights, sounds, and beauty of the San Juan Islands.
