Beginning and ending at Redhook Brewery in Woodinville, this tour sends paddlers down the Sammamish River to soak up the aroma of blackberry bushes and wildflower meadows and catch glimpses of geese, kingfishers, and majestic, undomesticated mountain bikers. After the kayak tour, the Forecasters Pub at the brewery vies with other local dining favorites for adventurers' culinary attentions.

  • $39 for a three-hour Lopez Island sea-kayak tour for one ($79 value)
  • $77 for a three-hour Lopez Island sea-kayak tour for two ($158 value)

Seafarers ferry themselves to Lopez Island, where they are outfitted with double or triple kayaks, personal flotation devices, and basic paddling instructions. As skiffs skirt the shoreline, harbor seals and bald eagles may be seen performing their aerial and aquatic waltzes to the castanets of Dungeness crabs, so bringing a camera is highly recommended.

  • $175 for a river kayaking basics class and river tour for two ($358 value)

Outdoor Adventure Center

The Outdoor Adventure Center's wildly experienced guides have led groups off the grid for more than a quarter century, pursuing rugged fun in the scenery and fresh air of mountains, rivers, and coastlines. Explorers at heart, the staff boldly launch kayaks into the ocean around the San Juan Islands and conquer the frothy waters of the scenic Skykomish River, known for its beginner-friendly rapids, migrations of spawning merpeople, pool and drop areas, and breathtaking views of 5,000-foot mountain peaks. Horseback and hiking trips delve into the lush woods, and nature photography excursions pause to celebrate the beauty of the wilderness near Index. The core team of 14 guides takes safety seriously, most with certifications from the American Canoe Association, training in wilderness first aid, CPR, and swiftwater rescue, and life vests tattooed over their chests.

    “Awesome experience! Group went for a Bachelor Party, never been rafting before, and our guide Garrett was awesome! Of course, each experience depends on the group of rafters and their willingness to have fun, and also depends on the guide, but based on our experience I highly recommend Garrett (white male, 20-30 years old, glasses, & beard). He took us through great water, joined in on the games, and made it an all-around wonderful experience. The company was smooth and easy during check in/check out, they provided great service, and I will DEFINITELY go back.”


In a Nutshell

Paddlers embark to and from Redhook Brewery, or on the sea around Lopez Island; a class teaches the basics of kayaking before a river tour
