The safety of our guests is Outdoor Odysseys number one priority. We have been in business since 1987 and have an impeccable safety record.
We use stable double sea kayaks to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable paddling trip in the San Juan Islands. We also provide lifejackets, paddles, spray skirts, and dry bags for all participants joining our “Eagles and Orcas” Tours. If you have your own lifejacket (PFD), paddling jacket, or personal paddle you are welcome to bring it.
All of our guides are trained in Basic or Wilderness First Aid and have CPR training. Over half of our guides for the 2014 season are certified as Wilderness First Responders – which entails over 60 hours of wilderness or backcountry oriented first aid training. Each guide carries an expedition level First Aid kit, flares, tow ropes and either VHF radios or cell phones for emergency use.
