Hi. Summer of 2018 we want to visit San Juan Islands. we are interested in a tour for a few days that visits different islands. Would like to kayak and hike, but also stay in lodging or even a yurt. Are there any tour companies that provide this type of tour? Any advice would be great. Thanks
We took the 3 day Sea Quest tour. We camped on Posey Island both nights. The guides were amazing and we had an incredible adventure. The night before and after the trip we stayed at Wayfarer's Rest, a hostel. It was really nice and convenient.
The company we used (Sea Quest) offers many tours out of Friday Harbor, some out as long as 4-5 days. I believe they prefer to guide customers rather than allowing them to rent the boats and go solo as my wife and I did. We really had to prove we knew what we were doing (trips to AK, etc), appropriately so. I don’t know about any yurt options. I highly recommend Friday Harbor House to either start or finish your adventure. Most times we stay in the San Juans we stay on Orcas Island and book via VRBO. Be warned that the ferry system is on a reservation system now and they can book up fast in the popular summer months (not needed if you walk on and leave your car at the ferry terminal in Anecortes).
