First time ever in a kayak and it was great fun. Took a 2-hour tour out of Langley (April 21). Our guide,Travis, gave thorough instructions, and then an informative tour (accompanied by his kayaking pup, Doors). The weather was super with lots of sunshine and little wind. The views were spectacular including Mt Baker, the Cascades, Mt Rainier. We saw... More

Hi! Apologies for taking so long to thank you for your review; your post slipped my attention. Thank you! We especially love our sunrise tours because we often see lots of wildlife working on their breakfast. We are always happy to 'modify' because it is all about your experience on the water. We look forward to paddling with you when... More

For a long time I wanted to go kayaking on Puget Sound. So I made a reservation to do it. When I called Whidbey Island Kayaking, the owner was amazing. As it happened, no one else was scheduled to go kayaking at the time I was requesting, so instead of bringing in a guide to take out only one person,... More

My family and I had a great kayaking trip with Whidbey Island Kayaking in Langley last Friday. They have guide-led tours and you can also rent kayaks and SUP to use on your own from them. It was so beautiful to be on the water and to see Whidbey Island, Mt. Rainier and Hat Island from a new perspective. We... More

Hi Charlie, Thank you for bringing your family out on a kayak tour with us. You were a great group and we had fun too. And you're right---you haven't really seen Whidbey until you see it from the water. Thank you again for your business! More

We rented a kayak and 2 stand up paddle boards and had them delivered to our rental house on Belles Beach. The service was very good. They told us everything I felt we needed to know to work the equipment. The price was reasonable. I would highly recommend.
