Alki Kayak Tours


Alki Kayak Tours is committed to the conservation and preservation of Puget Sound as a working marine ecosystem that supports the industries of Seattle as well as the spawning salmon headed up the Duwamish River. Our guides provide an additional set of eyes on the Sound, looking over its well-being for preventable ecological harm. We utilize the best management practices and focus on leaving the smallest possible ecological footprint when operating tours.

Our tours are a forum where the Puget Sound community and tourists alike can discuss and learn about the history and ecosystems of the Sound. AKT offers meaningful commentary with a goal of having every paddler leave with a greater understanding and appreciation for our unique corner of the world. Come joins us on a tour today.

Alki Kayak Tour Logo Fantastic!

We took the sunset tour guided by Nathan and it was fantastic! Nice pace - we saw a lot in 2 hours and ended with a nice float by Duwamish Head watching the sun go down behind the Olympics. Equipment was good quality, instruction was well done, and Nathan knew a lot about the wildlife and Seattle. We are West Seattle residents & still learned something new!

Alki Kayak Tour Logo Great way to spend the day!

Our family of 3 rented a 3 person kayak. Great way to spend the day on the water with a child. Our daughter could paddle or relax and it didn't feel like the adults had to work harder to compensate. She felt included but not overworked.
