Alki Lighthouse Tour
Join us for a sea kayak tour from the Seacrest Boathouse (Marination) to the Alki Lighthouse and back. Get offshore with us and explore Elliott Bay on an adventure that changes daily. We will meet at 10 a.m. and after a brief kayak fitting and tutorial, get in the boats and head on around Duwamish Head toward Alki beach. Incredible views of the city, the Cascade Mountains, and the Olympic Mountains will be the backdrop for an urban wildlife exploration and journey along a peninsula rich in history.
Elliot Bay Sea Kayak Tour
Come see what species of wildlife live right outside of the city and appreciate the Puget Sound in one sea kayak tour!
Ready for an afternoon adventure exploring the “old Seattle” across the bay? Join us for a paddle exploring historic Elliott Bay and the mouth of the Duwamish River with outstanding views of the Seattle skyline and Olympic Mountains. If we are lucky we may encounter some of the local urban wildlife including California sea lions, harbor seals, bald eagles, or osprey.
West Seattle Sunset Tour
Join us for a kayak tour from Alki Kayak Tours (West Seattle) around the west side of Elliott Bay. After a brief boat fitting and paddling instruction, we first head out on the water to search for wildlife at the mouth of the Duwamish river. Next off to Duwamish Head for views of the islands as the sun melts into the Olympic Mountains and creates a light show off the downtown Seattle skyline.
This trip is offered daily and is busiest on summer weekends. Reservations are required, but we can sometimes sign you up on short notice.
Full Moon Tour
Come paddle with us every full moon and experience Elliot Bay in the Puget Sound with breathtaking views of the Seattle city skyline!
We meet as a group, get geared up and then share this unique nighttime paddle. We head around the channel marker at the head of the Duwamish River then paddle into the full moon with the skyline radiating on the water as an added bonus. Join us for this epic and entertaining experience for everyone!
Blake Island Overnight Tour
Join us for an overnight sea kayak and camping trip across Puget Sound to Blake Island. With 15 miles of trails and 5 miles of beaches, Blake Island State Park offers a serene getaway from the city, and incredible views.
The overnight tour will launch from the Alki Kayak Tours dock, then head north around Duwamish Head. We will paddle along Alki Beach and its easy landings will allow for a brief rest at the west section of Alki Beach. From there, we will paddle across to Puget Sound Blake Island, where we will find our feet on solid ground again and set up camp. Bring your walking shoes to enjoy a hike through the beautiful madrona forests of the island.
In the event that winds kick up, the Southworth ferry will offer a default ride back to West Seattle and home harbors. Due to weather, tours may also begin with a launch from the west side of West Seattle.
Alki Kayak Tours will provide dinner, breakfast and all group camping and kayaking gear including tents. Please bring your own sleeping bag and pad (something you can carry and will fit in an enclosed space), a mess kit, and lunches. If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know in advance. There is a 6 guest maximum for this tour, so get a group together and book online or give us a call to make your reservation!
