Hello, I'm Sam Kaviar, the founder of Kayak Nisqually whom many of you have met. I first got my start as naturalist kayak guide with the company Sea Quest Kayak Expeditions on beautiful San Juan Island. I enjoyed my time with Sea Quest very much. In my time at Sea Quest I got to witness super-pods of all three resident orca pods. I also saw transient orcas, humpback whales, pacific white sided dolphins, and dall's porpoises among many other natural wonders. I treasure the memories of my time in the San Juan islands and you can be assured that Sea Quest has the same high standards for safety and excellence that we do at Kayak Nisqually.
