The San Juan Islands, located off of Washington State, are known as one of the most spectacular island archipelagos in the country. Craggy coasts, deep blue-green waters with abundant sea-life, and pastoral landscapes abound. Known as one of the best sea kayaking places in America, it also offers interesting small towns, a rich human history, diverse marine and bird wildlife, scenic hiking, and a unique opportunity to learn how to sail a traditional wooden schooner. We'll even get an opportunity to zip line. Our trip starts and ends in Seattle and if you have never visited Seattle in July, you'll find out why everyone falls in love with it. Maximum group size: 12
This trip is appropriate for any active woman who regularly walks briskly for exercise and wants a vacation that mixes being active in the outdoors with learning about the human and natural history of the area.

Since the San Juan Islands are made up of diverse ecosystems, we'll explore it in diverse ways: kayaking, sailing and hiking. We will visit two very unique islands and explore both. Being comfortable in water is important; no experience is needed for any of these activities - we'll teach you what you need to know.
The first 3 nights are at the Earthbox Inn in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. The double-occupancy rooms are classic retro chic with small kitchenettes. The Inn also has an indoor swimming pool. The next three nights we stay on Orcas Island at the Landmark Condos, each with 2 bedrooms and one bath, living room and kitchen.
Below is the proposed itinerary for the trip. As is true on any adventure travel trip, plans for any specific day may be modified due to weather considerations, unforeseen circumstances, new opportunities, and group interests.
