Kirkland Events & COVID-19

Kayaking & Paddleboarding

Kayaking and paddleboarding are wonderful ways to get out onto the water without alot of technical skills needed. Several outfitters offer rentals to visitors such as Northwest Paddle Surfers, Woodmark  Waterfront Adventures , and Yarrow Bay Marina. Nothing beats a paddle about on the clear blue waters of Lake Washington in summertime. We invite you to experience all that lakeside living has to offer.
