If you want to experience sea life in an unusual way, book an excursion with Sea Quest Expeditions. They offer sea kayaking tours in the following standard locations:
- Washington’s San Juan Islands
- Mexico’s Baja Peninsula
- Alaska’s Inside Passage
If you wish to have a more exotic custom adventure, you can also go to Belize, Chile, Fiji, Palau, Thailand, Vietnam, Costa Rica, or New Zealand. The tours are lead by biologists and environmental scientists so you not only get a great adventure, but you can also learn something too! No prior kayaking experience is necessary and all necessary training and safety is provided by the guides.
Their tours are designed for whale watching and they make every effort to track them down so you can view them. Your odds are pretty good because they kayak only in the world’s best whale-watching habitats. They look for orca whales in the San Juan Islands, humpback whales in Alaska, and gray whales and blue whales in Mexico. If you are on a multi-day excursion, you also get to camp at a location chosen by the guides. The tours also may include hikes, snorkeling, and tidepool excursions to give you the best opportunities to see the wild life. Obviously, the longer you stay, the more you get to do. Sea Quest offers half, full, two, and three day adventure tours. They provide the paddling gear, tents, cooking items, meals, and safety systems.
So, why view whales from the shore or a cruise ship when you can get right down to the water and practically swim with them, cruising alongside in a kayak? Kayaks also don’t disturb the environment or cause any damage. Book your next vacation with Sea Quest and you won’t be disappointed!
