Seattle Rental Experience

Equipment and Safety

All of the equipment available to rent from both both Meydenbauer and Enatai boathouses are high-quality outdoor equipment from trusted brands. Both locations carry a collection of paddleboards, kayaks, and pedal crafts suitable for the beginner and the expert paddler. Equipment is always cleaned and inspected after each use to ensure it’s fit for the most enjoyable experience on the water.

We offer kayak and SUP rental items from a variety of brands including Hobie, Wilderness Systems, Old Town, and Eddyline.

Planning And Boat Selection

You get more than just a rental when experiencing the REI boathouse. Our staff are knowledgeable about local waterways, and can help to make sure you have a plan for your day on the water. Explore our route planning section to begin planning the day on your own.

The Rental Experience

After arriving at the one of the REI boathouses, we help you get out on the water as soon as possible. If you haven’t completed your rental waiver, you will be able to complete a waiver in-person upon arrival. For a seamless check in and rental start, reserve your equipment in advance and look in your confirmation email to complete the rental waiver prior to arriving.
