When visiting Seattle, enjoy Elliott Bay and the surrounding seas up close and personal with Alki Kayak Tours. They will provide all the sea kayaking equipment needed, as well as take the time to be sure that you are outfitted with a kayak suitable for your size and experience level. They offer trips for beginners to more advanced kayakers geared toward anyone who weighs at least 80 pounds and is capable of handling a few hours of outdoor physical activity.
