About Sea Quest Kayak Tours
Our 35 Year Company Legacy
Sea Quest Kayak Tours has been a leading provider of kayak tours in the San Juan Islands since 1988. Founder Mark Lewis, an adventurer and educator, created Sea Quest to share his passion for guided kayak tours in the San Juan Archipelago and reveal the wonders of the Salish Sea to his guests. He pioneered the industry and built a community of nature lovers, guides, locals, and clients who celebrate the beauty of our unique area.
Under Mark’s guidance, Sea Quest became a trusted provider of customer experiences and lasting memories. After five seasons of guiding and operations management, Ben Henkel took over the business venture. With his youthful enthusiasm and profound focus on naturalism, client experience, conservation awareness, and safety emphasis, Ben brings vast experience and local knowledge of the Salish Sea to Sea Quest Kayak Tours.
Sea Quest loves interacting with people from all over the world and introducing them to the waters, nature, and beauty of the San Juan’s with intent and enthusiasm. If you’re seeking an unforgettable adventure, Sea Quest Kayak Tours would be thrilled to take you on a journey you’ll never forget.
