Tucked away in the NW corner of Washington State, the San Juan Islands were listed as one of the premier places to travel in 2011 in the Sunday issue of the New York Times: http://travel.nytimes.com/2011/01/09/travel/09where-to-go.html The article specifically mentions the burgeoning food scene – as well as the breathtaking scenery.
“The eternal lure of the San Juan Islands – what bring chefs out as well as tourists – are the landscapes. On islands from Shaw to Decatur, pastoral hills give way to broody forests and scrappy escarpments that overlook fjordlike inlets.”
If you have been considering an excursion to these sunny, forested isles (the 200 islands receive 1/2 the precipitation that Seattle does) then come join Outdoor Odysseys Kayak Tours. This is our 24th year offering quality hand-crafted tours in the San Juan Archipelago.
In 2009 Outdoor Odysseys was named as one of the “200 Best Travel Companies” by National Geographic Adventures Magazine. Outdoor Odysseys offers everything from day trips in prime Orca whale territory to 3 and 4 day overnite sea kayak tours. Prevailing winds and currents assist us as we paddle and explore the rocky, sun dappled islands – most of which are only accessible by boat.
Enroute you’ll enjoy stunning mountain vistas, kayak past scenic lighthouses and view vibrant purple and orange sea stars. Join us to relax, rejuvenate and experience the beauty of these pristine islands.
