Outdoor Odysseys uses only high quality sea kayaks, gear and camping equipment to make your San Juan Island kayaking experience safe and enjoyable.
All paddling gear including a life jacket (PFD), paddle, and spray skirt are included in our sea kayaking trips. We will provide dry bags for all of your personal belongings on both day and overnight tours.
We will provide you with one tent per every two people. You may bring your own tent if it is small in packing size (6-7 lbs). If you own or can borrow a smaller sleeping bag and sleep pad you should consider bringing these. (The roll up Coleman-style sleeping bag is usually too big to fit in our double sea kayaks.) Sleeping bags and inflatable pads are available for a marginal fee through Outdoor Odysseys. You will need to make arrangements with us in advance if you require these items.
We have been purchasing our fiberglass double kayaks from Northwest Kayaks, a local kayak manufacturer in the Seattle area since we opened our doors in 1987. Our plastic doubles which are used for our day trips are Boreal Esperantos. We also use NRS lifejackets, Snap Dragon spray skirts and Werner paddles. We are constantly upgrading our equipment so take a look at the kayaks and gear we have for sale from last season.
