Seattle Kayak Rentals

REI boathouse rentals are closed and will resume on May 1st, 2022. In the meantime, explore other outdoor classes and tours scheduled near Seattle all winter.

When it comes to outdoor landscapes, Seattle is one of those cities that has it all; towering snow-capped volcanoes in the distance, urban trail systems running through lush green spaces, the wild beaches of the Puget Sound, and abundant freshwater lakes. Kayaking is a great way to catch a glimpse of it all and you don’t have to run out and buy your own gear to experience it for yourself.

REI offers kayak rentals at two boathouses situated on the shore on Lake Washington in Bellevue, just east of Seattle. Choose from a wide range of rental options including sit-on-top, touring, and single or tandem kayaks.
