We had a great experience doing this and would definitely do it again. Our guide Chris was very knowledgeable of the area and sea life. Make sure you are ready for a workout. Especially in your arms and shoulders. I would definitely do it again.

I'll start with the negative; 10:00 tour scheduled and no tour guide was present until 11. Manager at first was very defensive and rude but when we arrived it was much better. After waiting we finally got on the water. Once there it was spectacular,...More

I did three things here: rented a kayak, enrolled in "SUP U" (paddleboard lessons), and rented a paddleboard. I should start by saying that the reason I did these three things here is that the location is unbeatably gorgeous. You're right across from Seattle, and...More

This place right at the water taxi dock and that's just the beginning of how easy this is. They guys working there are friendly, helpful, and cheerful. You grab equipment, they help you set off in the kayak, and you pay when you return! Just...More

We took the kayak class and had a bunch of fun. The guide/instructor was great and provided a lot of good insight. You should come ready to kayak vs having to change your clothes which was a little primitive but worked. The boats were fun...More
