Overview

Explore Seattle the way it’s meant to be viewed–from the water. We offer kayak and paddle board rentals March through October. Embark from beautiful Portage Bay explore Seattle’s diverse and vibrant house boat community. Cross the Montlake Cut to drift among herons and turtles in the serene Washington Park Arboretum. Or, sail under the freeway bridge toward Gasworks Park for beautiful views of the Seattle skyline. After your adventure is done, top it all off with margaritas and delicious Mexican food from upstairs. Kayaks, food and ambience may just be the best way to explore Seattle.

Great example of what happens when there's no competition and lots of tourists available to bring their business here. Unchecked bad behavior. I'll start with the pros: this club has an excellent location, breathtaking views of the water, and has a great supply of kayaks...More

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, though even though I mentioned I was a beginner they didn't really go over much of how to steer or what to do when a wake is approaching. I remembered what to do, so it wasn't a problem. You are outfitted...More

Such a wonderful setting for going at your own pace around the Lake, or out-paddling your friends as you overtake them! Fun variety of craft on sea, air and land as you look around. Incredibly fun.

This is my first time to play kayaking. It is really fun and the view here is awesome. We can the downtown skyline of Seattle and the icon building: Space Needle. I like and will definitely check it out next time.

The kayaking experience was very nice. As others have stated, you get directions from the staff and the rental is based upon the time you spend on the water. The price is extremely reasonable compared to other places I've been around America. There is an...More
