Kayaking  (return to things to do home page)

Beginner or advanced, you'll find the appropriate kayaking challenge on the Kitsap Peninsula.

With over 350 miles of saltwater shoreline, numerous bays and inlets, the beautiful Hood Canal and many small lakes, Kitsap is the perfect place to learn, or to plan a week-long kayaking adventure.

The Cascadia Marine Trail covers the area from Olympia all the way up to the Canadian border, where it continues as the British Columbia Marine Trail. Kitsap lies in the middle with trail campgrounds on both our Eastern Shore, the Southern end and along the Hood Canal to the West.

Listed are some locations to rent or buy kayaks. Check "boating" and "parks" for public access to the water.
