The San Juan Islands, off the coast of Washington State, are an excellent place for the whole family to go on a kayak adventure. This area of the Puget Sound is full of over 150 islands of various sizes. You can kayak all around the islands and the hundreds of small rocky islets. One of the reasons this is such a good spot for kayaking is that the area is protected from the ocean by the Olympic peninsula and bounded on the other side by the mainland.
Another great thing is the abundance of wildlife that you can see while paddling your kayak around the islands. Harbor seals love to lay out on the rocky outcroppings. Other Puget Sound watchable wildlife includes bald eagles, osprey, blue heron, otters, sea lions and porpoises. And don't forget the whales. Orca whales are quite common and spotting them is a fun part of a San Juan Islands kayak trip.
Sea Quest Kayaks and Shearwater Adventures are two companies that you may want to look at for renting kayaks for the family and for help planning your kayak vacation trip to the San Juan Islands.
