Sea Kayaking, Canoeing & Rafting in WA

Aquatic adventure awaits on the Puget Sound, where you can kayak, fish, and view wildlife all just northwest of the Seattle metro area. Imagine yourself paddling through the scenic San Juan Islands near seaside towns like Bainbridge Island and Gig Harbor. Look forward to a full day kayak tour with Discovery Sea Kayak – or sign up for a sunset kayak tour where you may even spot a killer whale.

If you’re staying near Gig Harbor, head to Jackie's Marine & Kayak and paddle the harbor, or reserve a picnic on Blakely Rocks near Bainbridge Island with Exotic Aquatics Scuba & Kayaking.

Found in eastern Washington, Othello is an epicenter for activity in Oregon’s national and state parks. Explore the Columbia National Wildlife Refuge, or enjoy a day at the Potholes State Park. This is adventure country, and you’re more than ready.

A scenic drive northwest of Othello, the Potholes State Park is another aquatic Washington playground, set right on the shores of the Potholes Reservoir. A 640-acre state park, Potholes is open during the summer from 6:30 a.m. to dusk, and in winter from 8 a.m. to dusk. Look forward to a day of fishing, plus water skiing, kayaking, and swimming. A perfect summer vacation spot, Potholes State Park is one of the best ways to experience outdoor Washington.

For a real adventure, Wenatchee River whitewater rafting trips are the best way to get to know Washington waters. Launch from Leavenworth – a scenic city set in central Washington neighboring the Wenatchee National Forest.

Choose from intense river rafting to relaxing family floats along the Wenatchee – and be sure to take in the scenery of the Washington Cascades. Rafting and safety equipment provided by local rafting companies like Alpine River Runners, All Adventures Rafting, and Blue Sky Outfitters – so look forward to a real voyage on the Wenatchee River.
