Sea Kayaking on Lake Union

Sea Kayaking on Lake UnionFrom there, you can paddle to Alaska, or just explore the beautiful Seattle waterways. Schedule & Other Infomation for Kayak Rental

From the docks on Lake Union, thousands of people have enjoyed the joys of kayaking each year. You can paddle from NWOC to Lake Washington, where you have some 80+ miles of paddling. Several paddlers have left our dock on their way to Alaska. There are 20+ models of kayaks available to tryout here on the lake, and also to take away to other destinations. Seattle's Northwest Outdoor Center has experience with most of the kayaks that are made today, and have chosen a range of models that will fullfill the needs of most paddlers. They have singles, doubles and triples, and some sit-on-tops for your paddling pleasure.
