Sea Kayaking Classes

At Alki Kayak Tours we are committed to keeping sea kayaking a safe and enjoyable sport. By providing new kayakers with a knowledge of their equipment and an understanding of conditions an entire world of exploration awaits…

We at Alki Kayak Tours are trained through ACA protocols, and will help you grow your skills to handle the variant NW conditions which occur here. We offer the building blocks for you to help you grow your ability while pushing your limits in a controlled natural environment.

ACA Certified Instructors

Join us for one of our classes:

Introduction to Sea Kayaking (By Reservation, 2.5-3 hrs)

Sea Kayak Rescue and Recovery (By Reservation, 2.5-3 hrs)

Sea Kayak Touring Essentials (By Reservation, 6 hrs)

We’ll supply the boat, paddle, personal flotation device (PFD), spray deck, safety gear and instruction. If you want to start building your gear quiver, come visit our sister store (Mountain to Sound Outfitters)

We recommend that you bring:

– non-cotton clothes for paddling

– shoes for the water

– a change of clothes

– towel

As a paddler your first concern is to protect yourself from the elements, wind, water, sun, cold, and heat. We paddle in cold water here in the NW year round, so do your homework, take a class, and get the right gear.

Additional Classes are continuing to be developed, so if you are looking for something, just let us know.
